Limited to [Registered users only]
The purpose of this working paper is to give an overview of main results from previous studies on
household demand for organic foods or alternatively for foods certified free-from-pesticideresidues.
We have concentrated on studies handling
• willingness-to-pay (in past as well as future WTP),
• purchasing motives/valued product attributes,
• concern for food safety, especially risk perception regarding pesticides,
• consumers’ stated propensity to buy,
• consumers’ willingness to accept lower quality of organic products,
• the importance of labelling and information,
• the importance of store choice, and
• relations between consumers’ values, risk perception, attitudes and behaviour regarding environmental
protection and WTP.
These issues are handled to a various extent in the reviewed studies. Most of the studies handle
household characteristics. In the paper, we give an overview of the influence from these characteristics.
