CONSUMER BEHAVIOUR AND ECOLOGICAL

AGRI-BUSINESS:

SOME EVIDENCE FROM EUROPE

 

Dainora Grundey

 

Abstract. Ecological agriculture synthesizes a variety of concepts associated with agricultural practices and their socio-economic impacts and consumer behaviour. In general, it can be argued, ecological agri-business must be ecologically sound, economically viable, and socially responsible (Ikerd, 1994). In this article the situational analysis of ecological agri-business in Western Europe and Lithuania is presented within the framework of eco-marketing and responsible consumer behaviour.

 

Keywords: agri-business, ecological farming, environmentalism, consumer behaviour, ecological marketing, Europe, Lithuania.
