Perceived probability of food waste: Influence on consumer attitudes towards and choice of sales promotions

Abstract : Based on a consumer survey including two experiments with more than 400 French respondents each, this research (1), establishes that consumers’ perceived probability of waste has a significant negative effect on consumers’ attitude towards promotions and consumers’ intention to choose perishable food products (cheese and bread) on sale and (2), highlights skepticism towards the “Buy Two Get One Free later” offer. Recommendations are presented for managers and public policies, in order to reduce households’ food waste and prevent consumers from being skeptical towards new promotional mechanisms, a brand and/or, a retailer.
