SHARE

New research by the from The Center for Food Integrity shows consumers want more information about food and how it is produced. The research, announced last week, shows only 28 percent of consumers strongly agree they have access to all the information they want regarding food, how it is produced, and its safety. Charlie Arnot, CEO of CFI, says, “The industry still has work to do.” The results show that consumers want transparency in very specific areas, including the impact of food on health, food safety, animal well-being, and the environment.

Furthermore, the research says consumers want fair and honest information. CFI also found that third-party verification is important, particularly when it comes to animal well-being and food safety.
