Pandemic Changes Our Appetite and Healthy Food Will Rise Again
TheIndonesia.id - With the passing of the year, trends also change. From fashion to hair color, everyone is eager to know what will be a hit in 2022.
Leading food delivery service GrabFood predicted healthy food will be on the rise as the pandemic has, consciously or subconsciously, changed the lifestyle of most Indonesians.
“COVID-19 pandemic affected the lifestyle of Indonesians. According to survey conducted by NielsenIQ and Grab with more than 13,000 respondents, 7 out of 10 Indonesians want to regularly consume healthy food,” GrabFood’s head of marketing Hadi Surya Koe said, as reported by Antara.
Moreover, 70 percent of respondents are willing to spend more money for healthy food. The idea of taking better care of themselves in order to stay healthy has apparently become one of the priorities these days.
Then what are these healthy foods desired by Indonesians? According to Koe, they include juices, soups, salads, sandwiches, and steamed dishes.
Previously, GrabFood also released the list of most popular dishes in 2021: fast foods topped the list, followed with martabak, pizza, bakso, chicken-based dishes, fried rice, burger, seblak, noodle-based foods, and sate.
