Food Safety People & Community Social Responsibility

Canadians say companies should be responsible for food safety

Canadians believe the greatest responsibility for food safety lies with food companies, but they do not trust them.
People trust themselves the most when it comes to ensuring their food is safe but few make an effort to learn more about production or processing.

Consumers do not hold themselves responsible for food safety even though they have the greatest confidence in themselves on the issue of food safety,” said Ashley Bruner, research co-ordinator for the Canadian Centre for Food Integrity.

“Canadians are not really digging down into how aspects of the food system affect food safety, but that is not to say they are totally passive on this issue,” she said.

The centre conducts annual research to track public trust on a wide range of issues and current events that are ranked on a scale of one to 10.
