A study has just shown that the British have changed their habits for their food purchases. Now more than half of consumers say they want to favor local products.
Research published by Barclays reveals the impact of the health crisis on consumers' purchasing habits. About 1/4 of Britons say they now want to buy products from local stores and farm shops, instead of only buying from supermarkets as they did before the crisis.
More than 7 million Britons had never visited a farm shop before the health crisis, but now visits are carried out regularly.
In addition, 63% of Britons say they will buy more local products because of the health crisis but also Brexit. The study also reveals the interest in sustainable food, with 49% looking to buy seasonal products.
The results of this study are encouraging for the Barclays bank, which is launching its Sustainability Through Agri-Tech campaign in partnership with Nigel Owens, world-renowned rugby referee and cattle breeder based in Pontyberem, in Wales. The campaign aims to help the entire sector achieve carbon neutrality by 2040, an ambition defined by the National Farmers' Union (NFU).
