2019 Food and Health Survey

Interest in Sustainability, Plant-Based Diets Among Trends in IFIC Foundation’s 2019 Food & Health Survey

The International Food Information Council (IFIC) Foundation’s 2019 Food and Health Survey marks the 14th time the IFIC Foundation has surveyed American consumers to understand their perceptions, beliefs and behaviors around food and food purchasing decisions.

This year, the survey continues an examination of issues related to health and diet, food components, food production and food safety. It also explores new topics, such as food allergies and plant-based diets.

A supplement to this report, produced in partnership with the American Institute for Cancer Research and focused on how cancer-prevention influences food choices among Gen X consumers, will be released in Fall 2019.
