Consumers in favor of NYC trans-fat ban, study says

Dec. 12, 2006
CHICAGO — Foodservice industry research firm, Technomic Inc., has found that 63 percent of restaurant goers nationally support New York City's ban on restaurant use of trans-fats.
Further, the firm's latest research shows that 70 percent or more of these consumers believe that foods served in restaurants contribute significantly to serious medical conditions and that a sizeable percentage favors bans on other types of restaurant foods.
"Almost all consumers now recognize that obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease are public health crises," said Bob Goldin, executive vice president of Technomic. "It appears that a fairly large and growing number of them are looking for increased government regulation of the restaurant industry."
