Des Moines, Iowa – RadioIowa – A new survey of grocery shoppers in the state finds 94-percent “place trust” in Iowa farmers. Andrew Wheeler is a spokesperson for the Iowa Farm Bureau, which released results of its Food and Farm Index Survey conducted by The Harris Poll.
The poll found 76 percent of those surveyed said they read food labels when they buy their groceries. That’s down from 82 percent in last year’s survey.
The survey found 19-percent of Iowa grocery shoppers are interested in food “raised organically,” while 28 percent are interested in food “raised locally.” The online survey, involving 505 Iowa residents age 20 to 60, was conducted between July 24 and August 5.
