November 2010 Consumer Food Safety/Defense Tracker Data Now Available

| No Comments

New consumer confidence in the food supply data has just been released by The Food Industry Center and LSU AgCenter. Learn more about the project and see past research results by visiting the CFST Project web page.

CFST research is a joint project between The Food Industry Center and the Louisiana State University AgCenter with funding from the National Center for Food Protection and Defense. The Perceived Preparedness Index (PPI) measures the change in consumers' belief about how prepared we (government and private companies) are to respond to food safety incidents. The Consumer Confidence Index (CCI) measures the change in consumers' confidence in the safety of the U.S. food system. When the indexes were initiated in May 2008, only 30 percent of consumers indicated that they believed the food supply was safer than one year ago.
