Consumer Concerns About Food Safety

This post on retailwire discusses that according to a study by IBM, less than 20 percent of consumers trust food companies to produce and sell food products that are safe and healthy for them to eat. The large number of recalls within the last couple of years has really had quite an effect on the perception of the consumer. According to the study, consumers want more information about the food products they purchase, in order to ensure the safety of their families. This is something that retailers and food companies will have to keep in the back of their minds when stocking retailer shelves this year.

  1. Hence the rise in organics and natural foods. Kosher foods as well have seen a sharp increase in the last few decades by consumers who want to be sure that the foods they eat are safe and healthy.
