The FSA have now published Wave 5 of ‘Food and You 2’ revealing that most people surveyed in England, Wales and Northern Ireland had made changes to their eating habits in the last year, with financial reasons being the biggest driver.

Latest figures from this survey also indicate that 20% of households across England, Wales and Northern Ireland are now food insecure. This is the highest reported level of food insecurity since tracking began in 2020.

Food prices are the top concern for people (66%), with food waste (60%) and the amount of sugar in food (59%) also featuring in the top three prompted concerns.

This is the FSA’s flagship consumer survey which measures self-reported consumer knowledge, attitudes and behaviours related to food safety and other food issues among adults in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. It provides access to high-quality data on what people think, feel and do when it comes to food. The Wave 5 report covers:

  • Food you can trust (including confidence in food safety, authenticity and the food supply chain)
  • Concerns about food
  • Food security
  • Food shopping and labelling
  • Online platforms
  • Eating at home (food safety)
  • Food-related behaviours and eating habits
