Australia

When it comes to eating at the office, Australians do it more than folks in most other countries. Past studies have found that 80 percent of Aussie workers take a break of 30 minutes or less, 59 percent have worked while eating lunch, and 44 percent have skipped the meal altogether in order to keep working — meaning most lunches (when they are actually eaten at all) consist of burgers, sandwiches, wraps, sausage rolls, and other quick and easy options. Although workers will sometimes bring a bagged or boxed lunch (or leftovers) from home for their short breaks, a recent study found that 22 percent of Aussies buy a lunch every day, 74 percent buy lunch at least once a week, and only 21 percent say they rarely or never buy.

Aussies are pretty glad, though, that Vegemite is finally an Australian brand again.
