Seven out of 10 consumers admitted they would pay more attention to the environmental 5 impact of the foods they buy if labels were clearer and more meaningful, according to a survey of over 1,000 people carried out by the consumer group Which? Labels aim to give shoppers information about where their food has come from ± whether it has been produced organically, for example, and reflecting its carbon footprint. But the overall level of awareness of the main schemes in use was very low and they are "poorly 10 understood", researchers found. Some people had never even noticed the labels that Which? asked them about ± even though they admitted to buying products that they appear on. Some, such as the internationally recognised Fairtrade label, were much better known than others, but there was still confusion about what they actually mean. Similarly, 15 established labels involving certification from industry bodies were barely recognised by consumers. Only 6% of shoppers were aware of the Marine Stewardship Council label used to identify sustainably sourced fish and seafood, for example. Shoppers cited taste and quality of food ± along with price ± as the top priorities (92%) when choosing the groceries and produce to buy, while protection of the environment 20 (78%) and animal welfare (74%) are less important to them. Nearly half the respondents (47%) said there were already too many things to think about without worrying about the environmental impact of the food they buy. People who are better off financially are more likely to be interested, and younger rather than older people. Significantly, around three-quarters (74%) of people said that environmental labelling 25 schemes on foods should be run by bodies that are independent from the industry itself. Which? will use the research to lobby for a new approach involving simplicity, consistency and independence.
