Biscuits are one of the most enjoyable parts of thousands of people’s days. A source of light relief between study, work, or just a moment of enjoyment.

The IBF always likes to encourage responsible eating along with an active lifestyle.

The following facts have been compiled from our years of industry research:

52 chocolate digestives are consumed every second around the world.
The world dunking record is 82 seconds using a standard Rich Tea.
It is estimated that 1.8 litres of tea are consumed every second through biscuit absorption.
