The benefits of a Mediterranean diet and lifestyle have been preached by health gurus, chefs, influencers and of course those living on the sun drench coasts of the med for years, but the diet has also been linked to good health by top health organisations like the NHS and the WHO.
Spain’s Universitat Oberta de Catalunya and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona suggest the health benefits of the Mediterranean diet is more than just the ingredients. We are of course talking about the social aspects, where dishes rely on group sharing, the most famous being Spanish Tapas.
As the UK continues the easing of lockdown, and with more sunnier days forecasted, consumer opportunities for social dining rely on more alfresco/shared eating occasions. For retailers it is an opportune time to increase options for Mediterranean flavours with alfresco dining options. Explore our Mediterranean ranges below:
