It takes up to 16 million meals per day to feed Australia’s senior population - and it’s growing.
There are nearly 4 million Australians aged over 65. Every year the Australian “over 65” population grows by over 250,000 people. Over 10% of those live in cared or non-private accommodation. Each person needs 3 to 5 meals per day. That’s potentially 16 million meals per day.
As the next generation moves up, there’s a distinct shift in dietary demands. The kitchens and menus no longer serve meat and three veg. A generation of sophisticated palates and diverse nationalities now crave the flavours of their homeland cultures or memorable meals from a lifetime of diverse eating. The Baby Boomers are on the cusp of major change in the feeding of the elderly.
