- More than half (55%) of global consumers are more likely to purchase a packaged food item that is labelled with a sustainability claim. This is according to new findings by Cargill, surveying 6000 consumers in 11 countries. This is up four points from the company’s last survey in 2019.
- Among the 550 U.S. survey participants, 37% said that a sustainability claim would influence what they buy, marking a six-point increase from 2019.
- Most look for “sustainably sourced” (63%) and “responsibly produced” (57%) claims, Cargill told sister site Food Dive.
