Published: January 2017

The changing meaning of eating out in three English cities 1995–2015.

Aim

The Eating Out survey looks at the eating habits of people in three major UK cities. It is a repeat study of research that was first conducted in 1995.

The aim of the study is to look at how people’s food habits have changed in Britain over the last 20 years and how eating out affects people’s social lives and diets today.

It is commissioned by the University of Manchester’s Sustainable Consumption Institute.

Findings

The results of this project have been published as an article 'The changing meaning of eating out in three English cities 1995–2015' in the Appetite journal.

Methods

The study is conducted across three UK cities; London, Bristol and Preston. Eating Out uses a quantitative random location quota sampling approach and the University of Manchester’s Sustainable Consumption will analyse the data.
