Within the context of existing behaviour and potential changes, empirical results from a survey of consumers in Australia are presented. These conclude that consumes believe their purchases of organic food do contribute to an environmentally sustainable diet. In addition there is scope to promote the co-benefits from other environmentally friendly food related behaviours, such as encouraging reductions in eating meat and junk food as well as minimising the amount of food waste. This will assist the Government in achieving it environmental and health policy agendas.
