QUALITY - YOUR BUYING CRITERIA
One of my contacts from LinkedIn, Gildas Guibert, technical manager of a major French fruit production company, and very active on the networks, recently launched a survey among members of his French-speaking network.
Published answers made me want to know what the reactions of my network to this question are.
My network being more international, I decided, with his agreement, to resume this survey but modifying the question.
So here it is:
When you buy unprocessed food (fruits, vegetables, cereals, eggs, meat, milk, etc.), what is most important to you?
1- The price? This is the consumer price.
2- The taste? Depending on the products, we will talk about flavors, sugar, crunchiness, juiciness, etc.
3- The aspect? Depending on the products, it may be color, brightness, freshness, appearance defects, etc.
4- The origin? Local, national, close import or far import.
5- The mode of production? Environmentally friendly production (organic farming, integrated production, conservation agriculture), or conventional production, small farmers or large farms, etc.
On the other hand, as I believe your response will be influenced by your relationship to agriculture, I would like you to indicate it in the following way:
A- Direct relationship to agriculture (farmer, or packer of agricultural products, agricultural worker or working in agricultural product packing, agricultural adviser, farmer's child, etc.)
B- Indirect relationship to agriculture (manufacturer or seller of agricultural inputs or equipment, service provider to agriculture, such as insurance or new technology services for example)
C- With no relationship to agriculture.
And finally, tell me your country of origin. I believe that the culture of each country may have an influence on food education.
Your answer could be, for example:
5, 4, 3, 2, 1, B, India
Of course, comments are optional, but welcome.
Indicate your answers preferably as a comment directly on the blog, it will be easier for me not to lose any answer.
I count on you. Share on your networks, we will have more answers. It will probably take me a while to analyze everything, but I am sure that we will learn some very interesting lessons.
