Top Ten South African Foods Sold in London UK


LONDON, April 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Food with Dutch Origins tops the list of most popular foods for South Africans in London

South-African-Hotels research reveals the top 10 foods most missed by South African expats living in London. Out of ten top products, three were of Dutch origin.  By comparison, when British citizens living abroad were asked what they missed, they stated products of purely English origin.

According to HCR, the items most missed by UK expats are all British in heritage, including Cadbury's Dairy Milk, Bisto Gravy and HP Sauce.

Ryan Mackie from South African Hotels explains, "It's not surprising that three of the foods that came up in our top ten list were of Dutch origin - Biltong, Drywors and  Boerewors.  It's interesting to see the long-term impact the Dutch have had on South Africa's current-day culture."

South African Hotels focused the majority of their research on London, as it is estimated that half of the 140,000 South Africans living in the UK, live and work in the capital city.  

They interviewed the owners of South African food stores in the UK to find out what foods they sell most, as well as consulting expats through email, phone and Facebook.

"Without doubt a great way to experience the diversity of cultures in South Africa is through the local food, often referred to as the Rainbow Cuisine," Mackie continues.  "This is a description that developed from the term 'Rainbow Nation' coined by Archbishop Desmond Tutu to describe post-apartheid South Africa."
