Consumer Interest in Environmental Attributes of Food and Beverages
Tufts Environmental Studies Lunch and Learn 2014
There is an increasing availability of food and beverage products available to consumers that purport to allow them to vote for a cleaner environment with their shopping carts. Often these products come at a price premium, and with a variety of labels and third-party certification schemes behind them to provide assurances that these products really do provide the benefits that are described. Dr. Sean Cash gave this “lunch and learn” talk discussing what about how consumers respond to what can be a barrage of information, and how they make food choices that involve their bellies, minds, hearts and wallets.
