Consument wil ‘vrij van’ op etiketten voedingsmiddelen

22 november 2013

New research finds that consumers crave more information, especially for the potentially harmful ingredients that aren’t included in the product. Consumers were willing to pay a premium when a product label says “free of” something, but only if the package includes “negative” information on whatever the product is “free of.”
For example, a food labeled “free” of a food dye will compel some consumers to buy that product. But even more people will buy that product if that same label also includes information about the risks of ingesting such dyes. An article about the research is published in Applied Economic Perspectives and Policy (Persbericht Cornell University, 20 november 2013).
