Consumers Don’t Care

The following piece is contributed by Jennifer Ritchie

I believe many consumers truly do not care where their food comes from. On average the times that I have been in a grocery store I see less than a dozen people really looking over food product labels. I would image if I were to go into a popular grocery store such as Metro Inc. and start asking people about certain products there were looking to buy less than fifty percent of the customers would know where that food product came from. Products such as eggs, milk, and meat should be something people should take an interest in to know where exactly these products are coming from. The results of this I think would be different in the summer months than in the winter months as a lot of local fruits and vegetables will be on the shelves when in season. Overall I do not think consumers care enough about where their food comes from.

    I would say that people do care where their food comes from, when asked. But in the day to day hustle and life, they are not as concerned about where their food comes from as opposed to the need to pick up groceries, get home, make dinner, etc etc.

    The other time people are concerned about where their food comes from is during a food crisis (recall, sickness, and these last few days, radiation).

    Thanks for the post.
