Antecedents of Intention and Behavior Towards Fair Trade Products : A Study on Values and Attitudes in Italy

Journal on Food System Dynamics, 2017, n°2, vol.8, 10 p. - Site de

Abstract : "The current study investigate s the significance and power of direct and indirect effects of values and attitudes on intention to buy fair trade products and on self-reported behaviors. Drawing on previous research, we selected three attitudinal measures – Consciousness for Fair Consumption, Environmental Concern, Moral Reasoning –and two categories of human values, Power and Universalism. Through a web-based survey conducted in Italy we collected data analyzed using Structural Equation Modeling. Results showed that Universalism exerted a positive indirect effect on buying fair traded products while Power exerted a negative effect. Therefore, according to Theory of Planned Behavior (Ajzen, 1991), the intention was the only direct antecedent of behavior."


Boycotting, Buycotting, and the Psychology of Political Consumerism

Intervention à l’atelier de travail American Politics Workshop at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, 2017/03, 35 p. - Site de

Abstract : "Political consumerism refers to the intentional avoidance or purchase of products due to political, social, or ethical concerns. The intentional avoidance (boycotting) and the intentional purchase (buycotting) of products have be gun to receive increasing attention in the political science literature. In this paper, we offer a conceptual framework for understanding and disentangling boycotting and buycotting, based on a psychological framework of avoidance and approach, respectively. Doing so provides us with further conceptual leverage for arguing for the distinctiveness of boycotting with in the repertoire of political participation. We design and execute two original survey experiments to identify the differential effects of negative and positive information in inducing boycotting and buycotting, respectively. In both studies, we find that negative information is far more powerful in inducing boycotting than positive information is in inducing buycotting."

God, Robin Hood, and the Uber Woman : Fair Trade Narratives in Christian Publications

Journalism and Mass Communication, 2017/01, n°1, vol. 7, 16 p. - Site de

"Since its origins as a grassroots movement in the 1960s, the fair trade movement has found a consistent, reliable base of support from various Christian churches, ministries, and organizations. This article reviews coverage of fair trade in several of the most prominent, U.S. - based Christian publications between 2006 and 2016 to identify the distinct ways in which Christian themes and language are interpolated within broader framings of fair trade. In particular, it addresses certain tensions between Christian concepts like “globalmissions” and “evangelism” in relation to a market – driven framing of fairtrade as a Robin Hood - like means of redistributing income from the consuming [global) North to producers in the South. The article also describes the unique rôle of gender throughout the coverage in these publications. Finally, it explains how a particularly pro- capitalist Protestant formulation described as “Calvinist social piety” informs the ways in which Christian publications frame fairtrade."


Eco‐Premium or Eco‐Penalty ? Eco‐labels and quality in the organic wine market

DELMAS, Magali ; LESSEM, Neil - UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability and Economics ; Anderson School of Management, 2014/07, 55 p. - Site de

Abstract : "Eco-labels are part of a new wave of environmental policy that emphasizes information disclosure as a tool to induce environmentally friendly behaviors by both firms and consumers. Eco-labels are often developed by third-parties separate to the industries that produce and sell the eco-product to create credibility. The goal of these agencies is to reduce the information asymmetry between producers and consumers over the environmental attributes of a good. However, by focusing on this information asymmetry, rather than howthe label meets consumer needs, agencies may develop eco-labels that send an irrelevant, confusing or detrimental message to consumers. In a discrete choice experiment we examine two similar eco-labels for wine, one associated with a quality reduction and the other not. The majority of respondents in our study were unaware of the difference between the labels. We found that respondents preferred eco-labeled wines over an otherwise identical counterpart, when the price was low and the wine was from a low quality region. However these preferences were reversed if the wine was expensive and from a high quality region. These results indicate that respondents obtain some warm glow value from eco-labeled wine, but also interpret it as a signal of low quality. This provides a clear lesson for policy makers that focusing purely on information asymmetries will not necessarily create eco-labels that align eco-products with the needs of consumers."


Coffee and Identity : Marketing to a University Campus

University of British Columbia, 2016, 18 p. - Site de

Abstract : "Branding plays a large role in the consumers they draw in as well as the audience to which they market (Bookman, 2013). Our research took this concept and extended it to the UBC Brand of Fair Trade Coffee with the intention of marketing Fair Trade successfully to UBC students. Our research questions whether coffee is rooted in identity, and whether it is a factor that influences UBC students’ desire to purchase fair trade coffee. In our study, we surveyed 102 UBC students who self-identified as coffee drinkers. In our control condition, participants chose between sleeves with a Starbucks logo, a Tim Hortons logo, or the current UBC Fair Trade logo. In the experimental condition, participants were asked to choose between the sleeves with a Starbucks logo, a Tim Hortons logo, and a newly designed Fair Trade coffee sleeve with an original ‘UBC Thunderbirds’ logo. We associated the students’ sense of identity with the Thunderbird logo and hypothesized that this fair trade coffee brand would increase likelihood that students should choose fair trade coffee. After reviewing the results, our hypothesis was disconfirmed, as people were less likely to choose the UBC Thunderbirds sleeve in comparison to the control condition."


Estudio comparativo entre la producción apícola convencional y la producción apícola orgánica de comercio justo por pequeños productores del estado de Morelos

TINOCO CHAVELAS, Maria Magdalena - Instituto Politécnico Nacional, Centro Interdisciplinario de Investigaciones y Estudios sobre Medio Ambiente y Desarrollo, 2017, 101 p. - Site de

Abstract : "The development and promotion of organic and fair trade products in the world has become particularly important because, in recent years, there has been a growing trend towards the preference to consume healthy food, this preference has been generated by several factors, among the increase in food-related diseases, the controversy over genetically modified organisms, concern for sustainable development and, on the other hand, the ravages of the current globalized economy in small-scale food producers’ organizations. Currently, the most developed countries are the largest demanders and producers worldwide, however, México has presented a significant growth in organic exports, driven largely by private initiatives, and to a lesser extent mainly in the south of the country. Has increased the incursion of food producing organizations such as honey and coffee in the so-called fair trade movement. Given this situation, it is necessary to carry out an evaluation of the sustainable growth of organic and fair trade products compared to conventional production. In the present case study, a qualitative and quantitative research was carried out, which allowed to analyze the situation of organic and fair trade products at the global and national levels. In addition, semi-structured interviews with two groups of beekeepers allowed a knowledge from different perspectives on the differences and similarities around organic production and fair trade of honey and conventional production, in both cases carried out by Small producers in the town of Yecapixtla in the state of Morelos, and then make proposals to establish a vision and direction of production of organic honey and fair trade by small producers."

BORJA, Juan - Universidad Central del Ecuador, 2015, n°1, vol.3, 4 p. - Site de

Resumen : « Este trabajo analiza el comercio justo de banano en Ecuador. Esta modalidad de comercialización ha permitido a los productores campesinos organizados obtener mejores ingresos económicos que los campesinos que comercializan la fruta a través del sistema tradicional. El comercio justo está también asociado con la disminución en la aplicación de insumos y el uso de tecnologías que causan menor impacto al ambiente. Las potencialidades y limitaciones de la comercialización alternativa se discuten a través del texto. »
