In December 2020 European Institute of Innovation and Technology published a report on the impact of COVID-19 on consumer food behaviours. Data for this survey was collected in September 2020 in 10 European countries (Spain, Sweden, Germany, UK, Poland, Italy, France, Greece, Finland, Romania).
Not surprisingly, the survey found behaviours around food shopping, cooking and consumption to have been widely affected across the board, but it also revealed significant shifts in people’s intentions post-pandemic. This includes an increased appetite for more varied cooking and dining experiences at home and rising demand for healthy food and local and sustainable options. These trends are framed by the challenging economic picture across Europe, making easy access to food at affordable prices the lead priority for our respondents going forward.
