Consumers check labels
A Food Standards Agency (FSA) survey has found an increasing awareness among consumers towards healthier eating. More people are taking an interest in food, particularly by checking the labels and eating more fruit and vegetables.
The survey team interviewed more than 3,000 people over five weeks. It was found the number of consumers who claim to be eating more vegetables, salads and fruit has increased, as well as a rise in the number of people who never eat ready-made meals.
An increase in the number of people who claim to make a meal from raw
ingredients at least once a day was also noted.
