Public attitudes to GM food
Project Code: XA0402
The Food Standards Agency has published findings of a qualitative research project commissioned to explore public attitudes to genetic modification (GM).
The work was carried out by the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen), an independent research organisation, to:
explore why people hold particular views on GM food
better understand how people’s attitudes to GM food are formed
explore how people weigh up the risks and benefits associated with GM food
explore the circumstances in which people change their views
The FSA commissioned this work to complement a series of questions on food technologies, including GM foods, in the British Social Attitudes Survey 2008 (BSA). The results of the BSA are expected in early 2010.
