Mediterranean serves up food dip satisfaction

Whether it’s a house party or just a quick catch-up, a quality food dip has become an integral part of any get-together.

One of the greatest things about dip is that it goes well with nearly anything. According to our research, 69% of New Zealanders enjoy potato chips with their dip, while 58% of survey respondents like to eat their dips with vegetables (e.g. carrot sticks). Substantially more women opted for the latter, healthier option, with 65% of females reaching for vegetables and dip, compared to only 50% of men.

We’re all a little conscious about making a good impression when we have guests over – this means having a good platter with some tasty dips and snacks to choose from. So to find out which dips your guests will love, Canstar Blue asked over 1,200 New Zealanders what they thought about some popular brands. The results saw Mediterranean take a convincing victory as New Zealand’s favourite dip, earning five stars for overall satisfaction and receiving inaugural award for Most Satisfied Customers – Dips.

Mediterranean dips have been a sensation in the New Zealand market, offering a range of chunky style options, which the company says are made using only the best quality ingredients. This is reflected in the brand’s satisfaction scores, with five-star reviews across all criteria, including taste.

Frequently asked questions

Canstar Blue commissioned I-view to survey 2,500 New Zealand consumers across a range of categories to measure and track customer satisfaction. The outcomes reported are the results from customers within the survey group who have purchased and eaten a dip in the last three months – in this case, 1,282 New Zealanders.

Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included. Results are comparative and it should be noted that brands receiving three stars have still achieved a satisfaction measure of at least six out of 10. Not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The ratings table is first sorted by star ratings and then alphabetically. A rated brand may receive a ‘N/A’ (Not Applicable) rating if it does not receive the minimum number of responses for that criteria.
