Research Background:

Research results are excerpts from a nationwide survey of US consumers conducted by Portland Marketing Analytics LLC in 2015 and 2017. In each round of the research, two consumer types were targeted: the general US population (all consumers 18 years of age or older) and those who self-reported health and sustainability as a driving value in the foods they buy (Lifestyle of Health and Sustainability, or LOHAS). In 2017, 1,007 surveys were completed, with a +/-2.6 margin of error. In 2015, 1,009 surveys were completed, with a +/-2.6 margin of error. Statistical significance was set at the 90% level of confidence.
