As part of the implementation of a national food policy, the Ministry of Agriculture, Viticulture and Rural Development and the Ministry of Consumer Protection commissioned a study from the ILRES polling institute. The aim of the study was to find out about consumers’ habits and concerns regarding their food.
It revealed that 9 out of 10 residents are interested in food-related issues. The issues of greatest concern to consumers are food waste, healthy eating and the availability of regional products.
Paulette Lenert, Minister for Consumer Protection, said: “Helping consumers on the road to more responsible consumption is one of my department’s key concerns. I am delighted that more and more consumers are adopting a more conscious and sustainable approach to consumption.
