The European ecolabel has long been a symbol of sustainable choices for environmentally conscious consumers. Known as the “EU flower,” this label represents products that adhere to sustainability principles. Now, it’s time to extend this vision to the realm of animal-origin products, and we’re doing so through the SUSTAvianFEED project.
The Need for Your Input
Before we delve into the details of our survey, let’s talk about why your input is so crucial. The SUSTAvianFEED project aims to create a meaningful ecolabel for products of animal origin, but we can’t do it without understanding your needs and preferences. Here are some key reasons why your participation in this survey is essential:
1. Tailoring the Ecolabel to Your Expectations: We want to ensure that the ecolabel we develop aligns with what you, as consumers or food producers or chefs, truly care about. Your input will help us understand your expectations and priorities when it comes to sustainable animal-origin products.
2. Shaping Sustainability Practices: Your feedback will directly influence the design of the ecolabel and, by extension, the practices followed by producers. By participating, you have a say in the kind of changes you’d like to see in the industry.
3. Making Informed Choices: An effective ecolabel empowers you to make informed choices. Your insights will help us design a label that provides clear and relevant information about the sustainability of animal-origin products, making it easier for you to make conscious decisions.
4. Encouraging Sustainable Agriculture: If you’re a producer, your input can help us understand the challenges you face in adopting sustainable practices. Your feedback will contribute to the development of support mechanisms that can make the transition to sustainability more feasible.
5. Influencing Policy: Consumer preferences play a significant role in shaping government policies. By participating in this survey and expressing your sustainability concerns, you contribute to the advocacy for eco-labeling that can drive policy changes towards a more sustainable future.
What to Expect from the Survey
Now that you understand why your input is crucial, let’s talk about what you can expect from the survey. We’ll ask you questions about your preferences, values, and expectations regarding 3 ecolabel-related design proposals, seeking your opinions on various aspects of the potential ecolabel design, such as its appearance, the information it should convey, and the criteria it should meet.
Your responses will provide valuable insights that will guide the development of the SUSTAvianFEED ecolabel. This label will not only reflect your concerns but also serve as a powerful tool for driving positive change in the industry.
Your participation in this survey is an opportunity to shape the future of sustainable animal-origin products. By sharing your thoughts and preferences, you contribute to the creation of an ecolabel that truly aligns with your values and expectations.
