Diet, Health and Obesity in the UK: State of the Nation 2012 is a new publication from Leatherhead Food Research. Health has been a dominant trend in the UK, affecting the food and beverage industry through the re-formulation and introduction of new 'healthy(ier) style' products in a number of categories. According to this new report from Leatherhead Food Research, this trend shows no signs of abating with an increasing number of consumers indicating a greater awareness of health and well-being.

The report presents up-to-date consumer research, conducted via an online questionnaire, into attitudes, behaviours and perceptions of diet and health. In addition, the report utilises existing data from research carried out in 2004 thus providing valuable insight into the changes and similarities in consumer views over the eight year period.

With a length of 117 pages, the report contains 89 charts and figures, and provides a strong focus on developments in the UK market. In addition to the consumer research, market size data is presented for some of the market sectors considered to have been impacted the most by the diet, health and obesity agenda (e.g. snacks, ready meals, cereals and cereal bars, dairy). For each sector, there is further analysis of market trends, new product development and a review of key manufacturers and brands.
