An Australian Christmas

Aussie’s were predicted to spend a fortune on our festive feasts this season — so what was actually served up on the table on Christmas Day?

According to the Australian Retailers Association, $20 billion was expected for grocery items this Christmas and supermarket sales were expected to beat last year’s figures by 3.27%, with foot traffic increasing 7.5% week-on-week across physical grocery stores.

More than 900,000 punnets of cherries, 2 million kilos of fresh Australian prawns, over 80,000kg of turkeys, six million fruit mince pies, half a million pavlovas and more than 1.7 million mangoes are also expected to be sold at Woolworths stores before Christmas Day. And that’s just one retailer!

We could go on and on with the stats, but we decided to put our nose to the ground (or to the dining tables…) and find out where they shopped and what was on the menu at Australian Christmas celebrations directly from the source, our Agents.

Take a look.

And here’s what Christmas lunch and dinner REALLY looked like…
