ABSTRACT

The article presents the analysis research results of the confectionery mass market of production and consumption. A comparative characteristic of the confectionery products consumption by residents of Russia and Europe is carried out, the reasons for the differences in consumption are clarified. An analysis of the confectionery market in Russia in 2015-2019, coronavirus impact assessment on it, and a forecast for 2020-2024, according to "Businesstat" data, is presented. Based on the Russian State Policy goals in the field of healthy nutrition, the production priorities of the raw materials food main types that meet modern quality and safety requirements are determined, the introduction development vector of additional regional raw materials is determined, taking into account the of the region population traditions: berry raw materials, algae (kelp). When conducting marketing research, the methods of qualitative and quantitative analysis were used in this work. Marketing research was conducted using the questionnaire method, the sample size was 100 random respondents. The object of the study was consumer preferences when choosing sweet dishes. The survey examined consumer preferences in the category of sweet dishes: whether consumers of Murmansk region buy sweet dishes, where they buy them, what kind of sweet dishes they prefer, what possible additives would be acceptable and preferable for the consumer, what Murmansk-city and the region residents rely on when choosing and buying a sweet dish. Based on marketing research, the sweet dish producing feasibility that meets the potential consumers requirements and preferences was revealed. The consumers interest in this product type enriched with berries of the Kola Peninsula is established.

ABSTRACT

With the adverse effects of the COVID-19 pandemic widely visible in the event industry, event organizers face challenges regarding customer retention in the form of return visits. Because event revisit intention is crucial to predicting event attendees' behavior, this study attempts to examine the likelihood of return for customers who have prior event (state fair) experience. Drawing from previous studies on event-related hazards and safety risks, our proposed framework suggests that a certain type of trust (i.e., social trust and confidence) reduces perceived risk, leading to increased event revisit intention in a time of pandemic. To test hypothesized relationships among trust, perceived risk, and event revisit intention, consumer information was gathered through Amazon's Mechanical Turk crowdsourcing platform. Key findings that emerge include the fact that trust in events is a strong predictor of event revisit intention, while perceived risk mediates the relationship between trust and revisit intention, albeit weakly. These results offer event organizers insights into how to enhance revisit intention in the face of health risks and ongoing uncertainty.

ABSTRACT

This paper examines the relationship between the rapid growth of online food purchasing and household food security during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in China using the city of Nanjing as a case study. The paper presents the results of an online survey of 968 households in Nanjing in March 2020 focused on their food purchasing behavior and levels of food security during the early weeks of the pandemic. While online food purchasing has increased rapidly in many countries during the COVID-19 pandemic, little research attention has been paid to the relationship between online food purchasing and household food security. This paper provides detailed insights into this relationship in China. The medium- and longer-term food security and other consequences of the pandemic pivot to online food purchasing are a fertile area for future research in China and elsewhere.

ABSTRACT

10% of the French population concentrates a large part of the resources of the communication budgets of institutional tourism organizations. However, the vast majority of French people who go on vacation stay every summer in non-commercial accommodation. The challenges of growth in the tourist economy should therefore not be based on the quest for new customers in new markets, but on greater consumption of leisure activities by local populations. The absence of foreign customers in the summer of 2020 highlighted this mistake in marketing strategy when the potential of local customers is immense. This is demonstrated, in particular, by the success of the OCC'ygene card deployed by the Occitania region and the Regional Committee for Tourism and Leisure (CRTL).

ABSTRACT

Purpose: This study aims to simultaneously examine the influence of demographic, psychographic and situational factors on consumers' willingness to pay a price premium (WTPp) for robotic restaurants and to profile market segments based on consumers' WTPp levels (positive, neutral and negative). Design/methodology/approach: Using an online survey, the data were gathered from a sample of 897 Thai consumers who had dined at a robotic restaurant in the past 12 months. Structural equation modeling, chi-square tests and the one-way analysis of variance were used for data analysis. Findings: Demographic (gender, age, income and marital status), psychographic (perceived advantages/disadvantages, personal innovativeness and personality traits) and situational factors (perceived health risk and self-protection behavior) significantly influence consumers' WTPp for robotic restaurants. The positive price premium group differs significantly from the neutral and negative price premium groups in terms of demographic, psychographic and situational profiles. Practical implications: The findings of this study help restaurateurs target the correct customers and set up appropriate price fences to safeguard profits and maximize return on investment. Originality/value: This study contributes to the literature on technology-based services and hospitality by heeding the calls made by Ivanov and Webster (2021) and providing much-needed empirical evidence of possible changes in consumers' WTPp for robot-delivered services in restaurants due to COVID-19.

ABSTRACT

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to explore the three-way interaction effects among congruence type (proximal vs distal) of nonverbal ad messages, assessment perspective (internal vs external) of verbal ad messages and social distance (close vs faraway) on consumers' visit intention. Design/methodology/approach: After developing the four categories of restaurant advertisements and scenarios for each type of social distance, the authors used 780 observations collected from Chinese consumers via the online survey platform Sojump and WeChat. The authors conducted ANOVA to test the hypotheses. Findings: The results reveal that in proximal congruence situations, consumers who feel a close social distance between themselves and their companions report higher visit intentions when exposed to internal versus external perspective-oriented ad messages;in distal congruence situations, external perspective-oriented ad messages elicit higher intention to visit advertised restaurant when consumers feel a far social distance between themselves and their companions. Research limitations/implications: Future research can focus on the different categories of messages, such as functional and experiential messages, to find whether similar interaction effects are explored or not. Practical implications: This paper suggests some practical implications for advertisers to maximize the impact of advertisements on consumers' behavioral outcomes via combining the different characteristics of nonverbal and verbal messages effectively, especially according to their target consumers' characteristics. Originality/value: In the view of the three-way interaction effects, this paper offers a new lens on understanding how advertisements influence consumers' behavioral outcomes, which could contribute to the advancement of advertisement theories.

ABSTRACT

The relationship between international trade and animal health is particularly important in the Agreement on the Application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures (SPS) of the World Trade Organization - WTO. Supported by the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), SPS measures are scientifically justified and play an important role in placing epidemiology at the center of decisions related to health and animal trade. The objective of this study was to discuss the interactions between the international meat trade and the epidemiology of zoonotic diseases of viral origin, in a debate on how the current Covid-19 pandemic could change the consumer behavior related to health and hygiene issues, and how the meat sector was affected by SPS measures, highlighting the relevance of Brazil in this context.

ABSTRACT

The aims of this study are to determine if CAM use has potential to reduce unnecessary antibiotic use and support the global efforts against antimicrobial resistance, and to ensure that antimicrobials and other conventional treatment approaches are used where appropriate. 20 farms with a range of management systems, herd sizes and production goals were recruited to this study. Interviews were conducted with 24 farmers through a mixture of face-to-face, telephone and videoconferencing modalities necessitated by movement restrictions during the Covid-19 pandemic. In addition, 16 farms were visited to collect ethnographic participant observational data using ethnographic fieldnotes and photographs. Interviews were conducted using a topic guide and explored participants' experience of CAM, including drivers/barriers to CAM use, experiences of CAM use and how CAM might influence the use of conventional medicine such as antibiotics. Early findings indicate several drivers for UK dairy farmers to use CAM approaches, including their own personal [or friends' and relations'] experiences, the views of influential people and advisors, networks within the farming community and the fact that CAM use allows a greater sense of autonomy in health-based decision making. Farmers often refer to milk buyers and organic guidelines as factors which influence their use of CAM. They further refer to a desire to 'do something' for the animal and to minimise animal welfare related concerns. A range of CAM information sources were also consulted by farmers including, holistic health management organisations/courses, online materials, and pharmacies. Participating farmers associate the use of CAM approaches with other holistic health management practices, human-animal interactions, the actual character and physical characteristics of an animal and animal welfare. This indicates that CAM use is seen by farmers as part of a wider ethos and belief about holistic farming practices and land use. Additionally, data implies that some farmers value their positive personal experiences of CAM use over scientific evidence. In contrast, barriers to CAM use were also identified including: the perception that CAM approaches are reserved specifically for organic systems, little access to CAM and related resources and some existing tensions between farmers and other stakeholders' views. Early findings suggest that farmers are influenced in their use of CAM by a range of individuals within the agriculture community, including veterinary surgeons (some of whom use homeopathic practices), mainstream farming press and pro-CAM organisations and advisors.

ABSTRACT

At the beginning of the pandemic, an excessive purchase of some products was observed, but this has not been evaluated if it is related to mental health. Therefore, the objective was to determine the factors associated with the purchase of basic necessities in the Peruvian population at the beginning of the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. An analytical cross-sectional study was carried out, based on a secondary data analysis. Information from 3379 Peruvians from all regions was used, they were asked about the purchases they made, crossing these with the results of the "KNOW-P-COVID-19", "F-COVID-19" and "MED-COVID-19" scales;obtaining descriptive and analytical results. The most purchased products were disinfectant (43.9%), followed by soap (43.6%) and alcohol (40.8%). In the multivariate analysis, the purchase of disinfectants (p=0.009), soap (p < 0.001) and alcohol (p=0.002) was found to be associated with sex;the purchase of personal protective equipment (p=0.027), antibacterial gel (p=0.010) and face masks (p=0.015) was associated with age;to the fatalism score the purchase of food (p=0.005), personal protective equipment (p < 0.001), soap (p=0.014), alcohol (p=0.043) and face masks (p < 0.001);to the score of fears and concern conveyed by the media the purchase of personal protective equipment (p=0.007), soap (p < 0.001) and face masks (p=0.005) and to the score of knowledge of the disease the purchase of soap (p < 0.001), antibacterial gel (p=0.011) and toilet paper (p=0.009). Significant associations were found with the purchase of supplies (p < 0.011).

ABSTRACT

Consumer behavior has changed during the Covid-19 pandemic in all spheres of life. In Malaysia, there was a surge in e-commerce, a preference to buy essential goods from trusted brands while being cautious with spending. During the pandemic, Malaysian consumers have been more careful about spending their money and where they spend their money. Based on the review of past literature, the study's goal was to examine the relationships of variables such as perceived severity, cyberchondria, self-efficacy, and self-isolation on consumer behavior during the Covid-19 pandemic in Malaysia. The aim of the study was also to highlight the implications of the study that will be beneficial to the Malaysian government, the consumer association, and retailers. The quantitative research method was used to conduct this study via online questionnaires. The target respondents were consumers from Selangor between the ages of 20 to 60, mainly those with jobs and who earned a monthly income. A total of 196 respondents answered the questionnaire. The reliability, linearity, normality, correlation, and multiple regression tests were conducted using SPSS. The study results revealed that only perceived severity and self-isolation had significant relationships with consumer behavior. The scientific novelty of the study was that both cyberchondria and self-efficacy were insignificant. These findings imply that both cyberchondria and self-efficacy do not affect the consumer behaviour of Malaysian during the pandemic. The implications of the research findings were discussed.

ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to investigate the impacts of COVID-19 on the consumption patterns of vegetarians and non-vegetarian populations, mainly on animal-based products. A cross-sectional, questionnaire-based survey was conducted among the urban and periurban populations of Bengaluru, Karnataka during October to November of 2020 through electronic mode. The data was collected from 837 (54.2% non-vegetarian and 54.2% vegetarians) participants. Significant change in the number of family members before and during the COVID lockdown was observed. The egg and chicken consumption had drastically increased among the non-vegetarians whereas, among the majority of the vegetarians, no change in milk consumption but a considerable increase in curd and buttermilk, paneer/cheese, and ghee/butter consumption was observed. Both non-vegetarian and vegetarian consumers had shifted to online delivery apps for purchasing products during the pandemic. The majority of the non-vegetarians (80.84%) and vegetarians (55.09%) opined that the price of meat and milk products increased during the pandemic. The pandemic had an effect on consumption among non-vegetarian and vegetarian consumers but increased accessibility of products through deliveries or pick-up points at various locations might have reduced the price and also induce the consumption of these products.

ABSTRACT

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented stresses on food supply chain in the country, with bottlenecks in processing, transportation and logistics, as well as momentous shifts in consumption pattern and demand for fish and other meat. In this study, the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on consumption pattern of fish, chicken, egg, mutton, beef and pork, market availability and as well as prices in North Eastern Region of India was analysed in this study. The study based on primary data collected through online survey method for which a questionnaire framed in Google Form. The sample comprises of total 104 respondents. The Wilcoxon signed-rank test for repeated measure differences between before COVID-19 and during COVID-19 levels of consumption of fish and other non vegetarian food items and quality of fishes supplied during two periods were analysed. It was found that the reduction in consumption of fishes, chicken and beef, during COVID-19 pandemic, were statistically significant. Whereas, the Wilcoxon signed rank test statistics for mutton and pork turned out to be insignificant. During COVID-19 the consumption of local fishes increased due non availability and distortion of fish supply chain. The quality of fishes in terms of freshness, size and odour were also impacted. Due poor availability of fishes, prices of fish increased during COVID-19. The increase in fish prices and poor availability of fishes resulted to shift in purchase of processed fish products in the North Eastern Region in India. The disruption in transportation, logistics, lockdown, etc during COVID-19 impacted trade of fishes as well as its consumption in the region. Hence, efforts for increasing of local supply of fishes as well as the development of resilient supply chain with sufficient storage facilities is needed to cope up under such unprecedented situation.

ABSTRACT

The paucity of reliable, timely household consumption data in many low- and middle-income countries has made it difficult to assess how global poverty has evolved during the COVID-19 pandemic. Standard poverty measurement requires collecting household consumption data, which is rarely done by phone. To test the feasibility of collecting consumption data over the phone, we conducted a survey experiment in urban Ethiopia, randomly assigning households to either phone or in-person interviews. In the phone survey, average per capita consumption was 23 per cent lower than in the in-person survey, and the estimated poverty headcount was twice as high. There is evidence of survey fatigue occurring early in phone interviews but not in in-person interviews;the bias is correlated with household characteristics. While the phone survey mode provides comparable estimates when measuring diet-based food security, it is not amenable to measuring consumption using the 'best practice' approach originally devised for in-person surveys.

ABSTRACT

The fragility of global food supply chains, which signals food shortages and increases in food prices in recent years, has reached the highest level with the government's lockdown measures during the COVID-19 pandemic. The study aims to highlight the disruptions in global food supply chains brought about by the ongoing COVID -19 pandemic and present the impact of these disruptions on food security. Supply-side and demand-side shocks that bring about deterioration of the flow in food supply chains and disruptions that threaten food security have made access to adequate and nutritious food an issue as significant as the pandemic. In the food supply chain, panic-oriented buying behaviors by consumers, job and income losses due to changes in labor markets and inflation have occurred as demand-side effects. Labor shortages, disruptions in transportation networks, restrictions imposed by countries, the opportunities of digital technology, and the spread of e-commerce have emerged as supply-side effects. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused negative effects on food security, jeopardizing availability, access, utilization, and stability with supply-side and demand-side shocks. In the conclusion part of the study, the resiliency of food systems, automation of food supply chains, the safety of employees and the importance of monitoring supply chain activities in online environments, the social security policies and practices of the state for vulnerable groups experiencing food insecurity, and food sovereignty were discussed.

ABSTRACT

In this study, the New Coronavirus Covid-19 disease, which first emerged in China in 2019 and spread all over the world in a short time, was tried to be conveyed by using the consumers' attitudes towards functional foods, the literature review and a descriptive research model based on quantitative data. The aim of the study is to reveal the attitudes, awareness and acceptance of consumers towards functional foods during the Covid-19 pandemic process, and to create a perspective for consumers in all age groups. In the study, an online questionnaire method was used for 200 people residing in Istanbul to measure the opinions of consumers about the level of knowledge, awareness and conformity towards functional foods. It was determined that the majority of the participants were 55.0% of individuals between the ages of 25-34, 66.5% of individuals with a university education level and 67.5% of women working in the education sector. While 72.5% of the participants in the study stated that they had not heard of the concept of functional food, 76.0% stated that they did not have any knowledge about these foods. Among the functional foods they know most, probiotic yoghurts (99.0%), kefir products and herbal teas at the same rate (98.5%), cereal biscuits in terms of fiber (98.0%), fruit juices with increased vitamins (97.0%) is coming.

ABSTRACT

This study investigates the experiential components of armchair travelling and their effect on the armchair travelers' responses, which include perceived authenticity, destination image, and behavioral intention, by using a mixed-method approach. A total of 414 survey responses collected through an online research panel were analyzed by conducting a confirmatory factor analysis and structural equation modeling. The analysis reveals that a sense of telepresence and copresence are the major factors, which generate authenticity and a positive destination image. Perceived ease of use influences building a favorable destination image, whereas self-other online interactions significantly create a sense of authenticity with the armchair travel experience. The content analysis for the qualitative data collected using an open-ended question shows that the armchair travelers gain vicarious travel experiences and resolve mental stress through armchair travelling. Based on the results, this study provides meaningful theoretical and practical implications to the armchair tourism literature and industry.

ABSTRACT

Purpose: Among the five SERVQUAL dimensions, reliability is one of the most criticised dimensions because it is ambiguous and interpreted differently in the service literature. In addition, perceived hygiene, which is related to the attribute of safety, is becoming increasingly important in customer perceptions COVID -19 in the hospitality and tourism industries. In this study, three different sources of information are examined using a qualitative, exploratory methodology to gain a better understanding of the dimension of safety in the spa industry, focusing on spas in Bangkok. Design/methodology: Three different sources of information (secondary data, expert interviews, and customer interviews) are examined and interpreted through a content analysis methodology. Findings: There are two main findings. First, the assurance dimension of spa service quality can be sub-divided into four key categories: (1) product assurance (2) staff assurance (3) physical assurance and (4) process assurance. Second, perceived hygiene during the COVID-19 pandemic is integrated into the assurance attributes of spa service quality. Originality: The study advances knowledge on the assurance dimension in relation to spa service quality. In addition, the assurance dimension of SERVQUAL in the spa industry has been conceptualised in regard to the current situation.
