Insight of the Week: Consumers Rate Governments and Food & Beverage Companies as Key to a Sustainable Food System

Around the world, nearly half of consumers say that national governments have the greatest influence to build a more healthy and sustainable food system.

More than one-third of consumers believe that food & beverage companies are best placed to achieve positive change, but just one in five feel that “people like me” can play a role in building a more healthy and sustainable food system.

This suggests that consumers are feeling unempowered and are looking to governments and companies to help them adopt healthier and more sustainable eating habits.
