Nepalese buy cannedThis article was originally published in Foodnews
SUPERMARKETS in Nepalese capital, Kathmandu, are recording higher sales of canned food, República reports. One store manager characterised the new customers as “newly married couples, working people and teenagers”. The paper says that these new customers are attracted to canned goods because they are convenient, do not require cooking, and are often cheaper than making the product at home. Consumers also like the broad range of products on offer. A department store supervisor told the paper that sales of canned food often amount to well over NPR6 000 (USD69.17) per day, considerably above this time last year.
