Concern about the climate is making its way to the checkout - according to new data from Consumer NZ.

Its latest Sentiment Tracker shows almost 85 percent of New Zealanders expect to maintain or increase their focus on making environmentally sustainable food and grocery choices over the next 12 months.

Consumer NZ says this year's severe weather events are behind the surge in concern - which appears to be changing our shopping habits.

Chief executive Jon Duffy talks to Susana Leiataua about the study.
