Food label schemes ignored by some

30th September 2008

A study funded by the Foods Standards Agency (FSA) has found that a "significant" number of people do not pay attention to food labels when they shop for "treat" foods.

In addition, some shoppers did not read information when purchasing items such as flour and butter. A spokesman for the FSA said: "From the research so far it's clear that consumers welcome, and want, front-of-pack labelling and are frequently using them to inform their choices."
