Product Description

Review

From the reviews:

"The 25 chapters, edited by a group of scientists … address the question ‘Who eats what and why?’. … It provides a good overview of the basics of food decision making and issues such as food safety. … a generous amount of information on a variety of subjects related to food choice. The subject index at the end makes it easy to look up topics. … Anyone interested in a highly readable and diverse book would find Food, People and Society worthwhile." (Elizabeth Goldsmith, Journal of Consumer Marketing, Vol. 20 (2), 2003)

"This book … by a group of scientists experienced in European cross-cultural and interdisciplinary research in the special fields of consumer perceptions, sensory analysis, product image and risk research, tries to fill the gaps in our knowledge by studying the afore-mentioned processes from multiple perspectives. … essential for those engaged in product development, market research and consumer science in food and agro industries but also of great interest for students and academics interested in food perception and consumption, policy makers, health educators and nutritionists." (Advances in Food Sciences, Vol. 24 (3), 2002)

"The book delivers a unique insight into decision making and food consumption of the European consumer. The volume is essential reading for those involved in product development, market research and consumer science in food and agro industries and academic research." (Chemische Rundschau, Issue 6, March, 2002)
