Risks, benefits, health and the food economy

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


This report examines consumer attitudes and purchase behaviour towards risks and benefits of food products. Experimental approaches are used to analyse determinants of consumer risk and benefit perceptions regarding food products. The results suggest that perceptions and behaviour of consumers become more stable as age increases. Determinants of consumer attitudes and behaviour are crucial for sound decision-making of policy-makers and other interested parties
