Last Night's Dinner

This research was undertaken to gain an in-depth understanding of Australian consumers' dinner habits with a focus on meal preparation in the home. This provided a greater understanding of the types of meals Australians are preparing, why they are preparing them and the meal components. The research also provided an insight into the context surrounding the diner's and meal preparer's attitudes towards health, nutrition and cooking.
