People in the United Kingdom spend four times as much money on ‘on the move’ food as the Spanish and nearly twice that of the Italians, according to Datamonitor. UK residents spend an average £229 a year on food consumed in transit, with Spanish people spending only £56 a year, while Italians spend £128 a year on average. The report's author says the difference is due to the greater amount of time Britons spend at work and commuting.
