Information Package for Users of the New Zealand Estimated Food Costs 2019
Department of Human Nutrition, University of Otago
Since the 1970s, the Department of Human Nutrition (previously Home Science Extension with the School of Home Science) at the University of Otago has conducted an annual Food Cost Survey. The Food Cost Survey is based on a basket of food designed to meet dietary needs of adult males and females (19 years and over), adolescents (11 to 18 years), school-aged children (10 and 5 years) and preschool children and infants (4 and 1 years). Food costs are reported for four cities in New Zealand: Dunedin, Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch.
