“Eating alone has been proven to be a key contributor to unhappiness and loneliness,” said Uwe Stueckmann, senior vice-president of marketing at Loblaw Companies. “We know that we're better when we eat together. There are so many social, physical and mental benefits associated with the simple act of sharing a meal. So let's spend more time with the people we love, at the table.”
