The global packaging giant’s 2021 report reveals that food safety and security are top priorities too, with the pandemic shining a spotlight on health and highlighting weak points in our food systems. Concern about the environment is very strong, with pollution and plastic litter in the ocean as the joint top worry (83%) followed closely by global warming, cited by over three quarters (78%) of consumers across nine countries. This sits ahead of food waste (77%) and food accessibility (71%). Meanwhile, nearly half (49%) of the global population are now recognising the impact that everyday choices have on the environment. 

Good to see that the problem of plastic is rated higher than climat change now as it should be.
