Towards a healthier food consumption

Towards a healthier food consumption | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
In February 2016 the UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and the Environment Secretary Elisabeth Truss released findings from the National Food Survey, which had been running since 1940. Information about 150,000 households was included as part of DEFRA’s commitment to open data. In this survey, initially launched by the wartime government, thousands of UK households reported on their weekly food and drink purchases. The survey charted major shifts in the nation’s dietary habits over the last 70 years. Consumers are keener on knowing where their food comes from, online shopping has helped quick and easy access to quality food and the launch of the pop up restaurant concept is helping them to discover global cuisines and latest food trends (UK Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs, 2016).
