This article focuses on eco-labels from the point of view of consumers and experts/owner-managers of micro-organisations.

This paper presents preliminary findings of a wider research project with emphasis on the potential for future research and marketing implications. The study is interpretative in nature and provides detailed results that contribute to an understudied area. View Full-Text
