Lockdown does lunch

MEAT snacks have come into their own under lockdown, according to Mike Holton, brand manager at Wall’s Pastry and Pork Farms.

According to Holton, an estimated 503 million more meals are being consumed at home, creating an opportunity for meat snacks at lunch.

“Out of all the meals, lunch has seen the largest change in demand with more than half of lunches being eaten out-of-home prior to the lockdown, and while sandwiches and quick toast meals will remain popular – ‘pester power’ from young children will continue to influence lunch choices with savoury snacks expected to feature in 10% of all lunches,” he said.
