Shoppers unconvinced about the impact of their ethical shopping choices
British research has discovered that food and grocery shoppers are not yet confident they can make a sustained difference through their shopping choices.
When asked what they feel they can positively influence, shoppers told food and grocery experts IGD:
personal health – 57%
British farmers – 41%
the local economy – 38%
the way animals are treated – 38%
farmers and workers in poorer nations – 26%
the environment – 23%
sustainable fishing – 17%
global warming – 11%
“At the moment the environment and global warming do not feature high up in the list of areas that shoppers feel they can influence through their purchase decisions,” Joanne Denney-Finch, chief executive, IGD, said. “This is an area that many companies are working on to make environmental choices clearer and simpler in the future.”
