White paper: How US consumers perceive the government’s influence and regulation of the food industry

16 October 2014

In an era of food-safety scares and a national obesity epidemic, the food industry has faced heightened scrutiny. But what do consumers think? Do they support more control or do they worry that too much regulation will limit personal choices? It’s a complex situation and one that FoodThink explores in its latest white paper.
Only 27% of consumers think the government can be trusted to act in their best interest. Consumers seem to be most supportive of government food regulation that gives them more information. For example, the majority of Americans support nutrition labeling, country of origin labeling, and regulations of marketing claims (News Blog FoodThink, 14 October 2014).
