The results of a $400,000 food study to create a healthier future for Manitobans will be revealed today.
The study was launched last year and was funded by the provincial and federal government to study Manitobans’ food preferences and health.
The survey results were part of the Manitoba Consumer Monitor Food Panel (MCMFP) project, a long-term online survey study that tracks the attitudes and perceptions of 4,000 Manitoba consumers. Researchers from the University of Manitoba Faculty of Human Ecology study food trends, determine consumers’ likes and dislikes, and learn how consumers approach food and health.
A presentation outlining what researchers discovered will be held at 1 p.m. in Theatre Room 124 of the Richardson Centre for Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals at 196 Innovation Drive.
