The International Food Information Council (IFIC) has published a forecast of food trends for the upcoming year. Highlights related to sustainable agriculture include:
- In 2022, American’s conception of sustainability will broaden its role in their attitudes and behaviors and become more “cemented in.”
- 42% of consumers believe their food choices have a moderate or significant impact on the environment.
- 7/10 consumers say that climate change sometimes influences their purchasing decisions.
This information can be added to the growing amount of research concluding that consumers value sustainability and they are paying attention to which companies and products will reflect their values.
