Kara has revealed that the beef burger has retained its crown as the most popular out of home dinner for the second year in a row. They are closely followed by curry then pizza, which overtook traditional fish and chips this year, indicating a growing demand for out of home dinners containing baked items.

In second place curry takes 7.6% of the share, while pizza is hot on its heels with 7.3%.

Kara marketing manager Jane Deegan said: “The results show that the market for out of home dinners containing baked items has grown year-on-year, and we predict it will continue to do so.”
