CONSUMERS spend the equivalent of 16 days a year in shops - including over 100 hours in grocery stores.

And the vast majority have said they would like to see labels on all food telling them where it comes from.

A new survey by Love Irish Food found that 95pc of consumers would like to see country-of-origin labelling on all food and drink products, with 87pc trying to buy Irish.

Currently labelling is only compulsory on a minority of products - such as beef and fish - and there's no onus to say where most processed food products come from.

Meanwhile, a separate survey by the discount website promocodes.ie found Irish shoppers spend a total of 16 days a year shopping, with most people spending four full days trooping around the shops between now and Christmas.
