According to a new global survey conducted by Focus Bari | YouGov in 17 countries, the pandemic year has brought about new shopping habits as well as consumption of specific food categories and food delivery habits among the Greeks.  Actually, the survey showed that:

  • Four out of ten Greeks shopped supermarket goods online at least once during the pandemic, and one out of three intend to keep this habit in the future.
  • 13% say they prefer the online channel as their main one for supermarket shopping, while 9% intend to adopt this habit in the future, as well.
  • As far as specific sources are concerned, nine out of ten have shopped at least once directly from the e-shop of their supermarket of preference, while one out of three have also shopped supermarket goods via the app of a food delivery service.
  • More than one in three Greeks have increased consumption of fresh fruit and vegetables during the pandemic, as well as that of house cleaning products.
  • On the contrary, the survey notes a considerable drop in the purchase of pre-cooked meals, ready meals and alcohol.

In her speech as a candidate, Valeria mentioned: “I still feel the same enthusiasm and I really want to have the opportunity to contribute more in the coming 3 years because I know – both through my previous participation in the Board as well as though the studies that FOCUS BARI has conducted on behalf of EASE – that the needs of the members are multidimensional and the challenges even greater due to the pandemic”.

According to the latest Focus Bari Survey on the current life status of Greeks versus one year ago, it is found that

  • Three out of five Greeks (60%) report their daily life to be worse than one year ago, before the pandemic conditions, while less than one out of three (29%) say their daily life has not changed, and slightly over one in ten (11%) claim their daily life to be better nowadays, as compared to one year ago.
  • Daily life has become worse after one year of coronovirus for men more than women, for younger ages versus the older ones, and for Attica and Salonica as compared to the rest of Greece.
  • Among the considerable proportion (60%) who say their daily life has become worse, the main reasons are the lack of environment change (82%), the fact that they are fed up being continuously dressed in pajamas, jumbsuits and sports shoes (42% among all and 52% among women), and they have difficulty in keeping a balanced daily schedule (37%).
  • Also, for those who work remotely, their daily life has been worse because working from home makes it difficult for them to put boundaries between their personal and professional time, and the fact that they cannot focus on their work because of the house working conditions, and this makes them work longer hours.
  • On the other hand, the few Greeks who report a better daily life today versus one year ago, say so because they feel calmer/have less stress, they have more time to themselves, they devote no time in transportation in heavy traffic, they dress simpler and devote much less time in taking care of their appearance, and they have a better daily schedule!
  • Luckily, after one year of coronavirus, the vast majority (78%) of Greeks report their health status to be the same as one year ago before the start of the pandemic, while only 14% say their health is currently worse, but also, an 8% say their health has got better!
  • For those few who report a better health status than last year, the reasons are that they eat more healthily/cook at home, they exercise regularly/have adopted new/healthy daily habits, they sleep more/better and feel less stress as compared to one year ago, before the pandemic conditions were imposed.
  • On the other hand, for those whose health has become worse, the main reasons are exactly the opposite: they have gained weight/have been overeating, they don’t exercise, they don’t sleep well and they feel depressed, lonely or stressed and anxious.
  • Finally, it is noted that slightly over one out of three Greeks have started or increased at least one of a set of “not so healthy” habits during the pandemic year, these ranging from increased smoking cigarettes/electronic/substitutes to drinking alcohol, betting, overdoses of food supplements, etc.
