Survey reveals why Brits love British
more than ever before
WITH Brexit looming, recent research
suggests Brits are turning to traditional British comfort food more than ever
before and further cementing the growing trend with 6 in 10 Liverpudlian's
saying when given the choice they would always choose a product that was made in
The research conducted by Young's Seafood polled 2,000 adults and revealed what
Brits love so much about British food with over 60% citing the fact it is
traditional and comforting. Not only do they feel love for these dishes but
Brits even have an emotional reaction when they eat them with ½ expressing it
makes them feel good and 45% reminding them of their childhood. It's not
surprising then that 1 in 5 voted fish fingers, beans and chips as their
favourite British meal, a classic childhood dish.
A whopping 95% of Liverpudlian's agreed that family meal times are important
with Roast chicken, fish and chips and Shepherds pie, all making the top 10 line
up of favourite British meals. Over ¾ of Liverpudlian's voted
British food as the best in the world with prawn cocktail, a full roast chicken
dinner and apple and blackberry crumble voted the ultimate 3 course meal.
When it comes to cooking traditional cuisine over ¾ enjoy cooking
traditional British meals with Mum being the sole teacher at 58%, but nearly ½ having taught themselves how to rustle up these types of dishes.
A traditional meal wouldn't be complete without a British favourite, with the
survey further revealing a list of favourite British brands that include Heinz,
Warburton's, Young's Seafood and Marmite; all of which take pride of place on
kitchen tables all over the country.
A spokesperson for Young's Seafood said:- "It's great to see most Brits
would choose products made in the UK and that you still cannot beat simple
British classics like beans on toast or a fish finger sandwich. Young's have
been making delicious fish dishes here for over 200 years and are proud to be
recognised as a favourite British brand still making the only branded fish
finger in Britain."
