UK consumers positive on science in food production

Some 55% of shoppers in the UK believe that science in food production is positive and should be exploited fully to meet future demand, says a survey conducted by UK market research agency Network Research. The study was carried out among a sample of 1,009 shoppers in May and commissioned by the UK Crop Protection Association (CPA). A belief that the government should take the lead in determining how science is used in food production was expressed by 59% respondents. A UK government report in January stressed that new technologies such as genetically modified crops “should not be excluded a priori on ethical or moral grounds” ( Agrow No 609, p 11).
