124th EAAE Seminar and AAEA/EAAE Conference "Food Environment: The Effects of Context on Food Choice"
Consumers’ choices and health outcomes are influenced by the other people, farmers, businesses, and communities that surround them. The “food environment”—the set of food choices available to the consumer, where the food came from, and how it got to the consumer—is a subject of increasing attention. The purpose of this conference is to provide a platform for research on the economics related to the role of consumers’ food environments on their choices and health outcomes. The conference is aimed at providing insights into the influence of the food environment on the quality, price, and availability of food, associated health or environmental impacts, and to uncover the impact of policies aimed at influencing the food production and choice.
