Food-to-go is becoming increasingly popular with office-workers, with the average lunch break now standing at just 22 minutes according to a recent survey. Conducted by recruitment firm Peninsula Ireland, the survey also shows three out of four employees are under so much pressure to get work done they are taking their break at their desks. And while the traditional pub lunch was the second most popular food choice three years ago, such a leisurely option no longer ranks in the top five.

A poll of 2,672 employees across Ireland found a jacket potato was the most popular food choice for a work meal-time, followed by fruit, pre-packed salad, pre-packed sandwiches and chips. Datamonitor research also found that snacks serving as filling light meals will ultimately have broader occasion applicability as consumers increasingly skip home-based main meals, opting for on-to-go alternatives instead.
