business news in context, analysis with attitude

The UK’s Food Standards Agency has published its third annual UK Consumer Attitudes to Food survey, revealing that 68 percent of people are concerned about food safety, down from 71 percent in 2000.

Just 45 percent of people are concerned about BSE, and 36 percent are worried about genetically modified organisms, down from 61 percent and 43 percent two years ago, respectively.

One out of four consumers say that food labels have too little information, while one out of five says that food labels are “fairly difficult” to understand.
