(PRWEB UK) 31 December 2013
According to the Telegraph, more than five million Britons will be spending the festive season overseas, and a report has revealed the most popular foods ordered by British expats at this time of year. It is reported that companies which were set up to sell traditional British food to expats have seen an increase in orders for turkey stuffing, mince pies, Christmas puddings, chocolates, and Christmas crackers, among other items. Additionally, Heathrow Airport has released figures which indicate that visitors to the UK will take over 918 tonnes of British products home with them over the Christmas period, with the most popular items being whisky, tea and Scottish smoked salmon.

As experts in the field, the team closely follow news relating to British expats, and were interested in this recent report. A representative for the company offered their comments:
“Moving overseas can be an exciting experience, but it can be comforting to have familiar items with you in your new home. This recent report highlights that, around the festive season, many British expats enjoy a taste of the UK. If you celebrate Christmas and are moving overseas during the festive season, it can be useful to follow some family traditions at Christmas to help you and your family to settle into your new home. While it can be a good idea to embrace your new home country, having familiar foods and belongings around you can be comforting. This interesting list of the most popular food ordered by British expats highlights how many people who have moved abroad still enjoy the traditional festive foods they were used to when they lived in the UK.”
“The figures from Heathrow Airport are fascinating in indicating the food items which visitors to the UK like to take home with them, and it is welcome news that many visitors wish to try traditional British food and drink. We look forward to following any developments and seeing the release of similar lists next year.”
