An independent survey conducted among 8,000 consumers has found that Europeans are more concerned about health and food safety than environmental issues, international terrorism, and public safety. The main issues include also a role of packaging in food safety. Health aspects play a crucial role in consumer decisions and this is reflected in the increased demand for food and drinks in lasscontainers. As many as 61 percent of those who prefer glass believe that glass is the safest container material for their health. For comparison, 48 percent responded in the same way in the 2010 survey.
