Interests: Consumer behavior and food/beverage choice; Consumer research methods; Cross cultural research on food/beverage preferences; Asian consumers' food/beverage preferences; The impact of food/beverage choice on consumers' health and wellness; Environmental and sustainability issues around food/beverage choice
Culture is, without doubt, one of the main influences on consumption. This Special Issue focuses on the cultural factors that influence consumer drinking behaviors and beverage choice. These factors include wide-ranging spheres of influence that directly or indirectly influence drinking behaviors and beverage choice: Macro-system influences (e.g., marketing, values, food systems), social influences (e.g., family), and environmental influences (e.g., institutional and community).
This Special Issue focuses, not only on how culture affects what beverages are consumed, but also on the role of beverages in life. Both individual cultural case studies and cross-cultural comparisons are welcomed.
I look forward to receiving your contributions.Dr. Miranda Mirosa
