We have, since autumn 2016, conducted consumer insight research to gather consumer views on EU and food.

Qualitative research was conducted by Kantar Public (2016) and Community Research (2017), on behalf of the Food Standards Agency.

The method for each study:

  • Citizens’ Forums – 8 groups of 5-7 participants
  • multiple locations across UK
  • groups split by voter preference – 3 leave, 3 remain, 2 did not vote or prefer not to say
