What the Survey Reveals About Australian Shopping Habits

According to new research conducted by Nielsen for Product of the Year, the findings have indicated that due to rising inflation rates, nearly one in two (45%) Australians are switching to home brand products in order to stretch the grocery budget further, and a whopping 86% of us employing cost-saving techniques. Other cost-cutting measures include switching to cheaper cuts of meat (42%), cutting back on food delivery (40%), consuming more home cooked meals (40%), and reducing food wastage by eating leftovers (38%).

Product of the Year Director, Sarah Connelly says ‘the rising cost of living has definitely changed the FMCG landscape, with affordability and ease being the leading driver behind the way Aussies shop. The Nielsen findings highlight how Australian consumption habits have shifted considerably, with the cost-of-living crisis echoing through many households. Whilst snacks were commonplace in the shopping trolley before living expenses started to increase exponentially, these are now classed as luxury items rather than a need, with many shoppers viewing snacks as low priority when it comes to feeding the family.

In addition, the POY winner’s trends are also demonstrating that many Australians have health and sustainability as added priorities, with quality and the source of ingredients ranking high in the consideration set, shown by winners such as Coles Joyful Protein Bar range, and Woolworths Macro Pasture Raised Carbon Neutral Eggs, to name a few.”

(No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
