Supermarket chain Sainsbury’s is set to unveil its DINspiration pop-up at King’s Cross station recently.
Recognizing this common predicament, Sainsbury’s seeks to offer busy commuters dinner inspiration by introducing grab-and-go meal kits.
For a mere 50p per meal, commuters will have access to complete meal kits, drawing inspiration from Sainsbury’s own-brand Inspired to Cook range.
Among the featured recipes are mouth-watering options such as Teriyaki Stir Fry and Harissa Chicken Traybake.
In a philanthropic gesture, all proceeds from the DINspiration event will be donated to Comic Relief as part of Sainsbury’s Nourish the Nation program.
The initiative supports organizations like Feeding Britain and The Bread-and-Butter Thing, which work tirelessly to combat food poverty across the UK.
The impetus for this event arose from Sainsbury’s research into the meal-planning habits of commuters.
The findings indicated that mid-week dinners often lack nutritional variety and taste due to time constraints. Surprisingly, 74% of commuters revealed that they contemplate their evening meals during their journey home.
For instance, 63% of Brits admitted to struggling when it comes to thinking of healthy dinner options, with 32% citing a lack of inspiration.
Furthermore, over a quarter of respondents expressed a desire to vary their meals more frequently if a convenient and quick solution were available. Another 25% expressed interest in using healthier recipes.
Sainsbury’s research also highlighted that more than 50% of Brits prepare between one and four dishes repeatedly each month, highlighting a need for culinary diversity.
To address these challenges, Sainsbury’s DINspiration meal kits are designed to offer commuters flavourful and healthy grab-and-go options for two people. These kits incorporate ingredients from Sainsbury’s Inspired to Cook range, which includes fresh produce.
In addition, Sainsbury’s has committed to donating 50p for every product sold from its Inspired to Cook range, both in-store and online, until July 11.
“We hope our pop-up adds a bit of flavour to commuters’ mealtimes, considering the significant number of people struggling with dinner inspiration,” stated Ruth Cranston, Sainsbury’s Director of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability.
She further emphasized, “Our Inspired to Cook range is intended to inspire our customers’ food choices, enabling them to effortlessly prepare fresh and nutritious meals.”
