“IFF were extremely accommodating adding additional questions to address gaps in the evidence base. They were also innovative in adapting a modular approach so that the sample size could be split and more topic areas could be covered. Whilst balancing the merger of the two surveys into one and adopting a modular approach and all the complexities that come with it, they went even further investigating a move away from quota sampling. Tasking themselves with this additional work shows the dedication of the team.”
