A Roy Morgan Single Source survey has found that around 45 per cent of Australians aged 14+ ate soup in an average week during the winter months of July to September. However, soup consumption more than halves to just 20 per cent on average during summer. In contrast, around 70 per cent of Australians eat salad during peak summer weeks in January to March, but consumption stays at around 60 per cent in the off-season. The survey also shows that in peak salad-eating weather each year, around 70 per cent of Australians agree that they like salad, while this figure dips only slightly in winter. Meanwhile, almost two-thirds agree that they like soup in winter, but only a bit more than 50 per cent admit to liking soup six months later.
