报告简介:

Consumer food waste and infectious disease are two extremely important yet understudied and unconnected topics in consumer research. This research provides a theoretical synthesis and shows that infectious disease salience increases consumer food waste. This occurs because when infectious disease is salient, consumers tend to feel disgust and have a high health consciousness. Given consumers’ belief that leftovers or passed best-by-date foods are contaminated, dirty, and unhealthy, the feeling of disgust and the high health consciousness motivate consumers to discard these foods. The results from one secondary dataset, one field study, and two experiments provide convergent support for the proposed effects. More importantly, in three additional experiments, we identify food safety education, resource scarcity, and hand washing as boundary conditions under which consumer food waste is mitigated regardless of infectious disease. Through this research, we contribute to consumer food waste, infectious disease, disgust, health consciousness and the related literature. The findings also provide practically actionable strategies to reduce consumer food waste in the era of global pandemic, which makes infectious disease constantly salient in consumers’ minds.
