Within the block of questions devoted to consumer behavior and food waste included in CVVM June survey, respondents were asked several questions about organic food. First, the respondents' interest in information about organic food was investigated. Next, whether people buy organic food themselves, how often and for what reasons they do it. The question was also asked how often people prefer foods marked as “organic” to those without this mark.

According to research results, people in Czech Republic buy organic food only rarely. In connection with this they also do not search for information related to this theme. If Czech people buy organic food, they do it especially because there are no chemicals used for producing those eatables. We can say that significantly higher interest in information about organic foods have women who are also more prone to buy them.
