TORONTO, February 4, 2019
www.hellofresh.ca - JHelloFresh, the Canadian market leader in mealkits, released the results of its recent survey on the home cooking habits of Canadians. The study surveyed 1,000 Canadian respondents to reveal these key kitchen insights:
Roughly four in five of Canadians prefer homemade meals to the meals served in restaurants
that’s 87%! This is despite the rapidly increasing restaurant options and the recent food delivery boom in major cities.

- - Respondents in other countries, like the United Kingdom, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, and New Zealand, were also surveyed with the same questions. Results showed that *Canadians, along with Belgians, are most likely to clean up right after cooking.*
Canadians enjoy home cooking more than any of the other countries surveyed.
HelloFresh Canada customers love to find the perfect recipe!
They ranked meal selection as one of their favourite parts of the cooking experience.
Of all the respondents surveyed, recipe knowledge is limited: 42% of people know fewer than 8 recipes off the top of their heads
