What makes local food attractive to consumers?

Andreas Håkansson

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter in book


    In order to understand the potential of local and regional food, we must first understand what it is about these goods that attract consumers. This chapter summarizes the research on what drives local food consumption, starting from an overview of the motivations of the consumers themselves and different descriptions of what characterizes consumers of local food (“locavore“), and continuing with potential explanations for underlying motives.
