Italians to save on bubbly and exotic foods this Christmas
More consumption of local goods expected04 December, 16:37
Merrymakers said they would be cutting back on Champagne, with 24% fewer bottles popped.
The consumption of caviar and exotic fruit is also expected to drop by 12%. Foods made in Italy will instead see an increase, partly as a result of the food festivals, Christmas fairs and farmers' markets selling typical local produce that proliferate at this time of year.
