The consumer perception about the influence of participants along the food chain in the field of food safety and food quality of meat is examined in a study by the veterinarian and postgraduate Karoline Henke. Within this study safety is understood to mean transmission and spread of pathogens, quality was defined as taste and mouth feeling.
For this study 1000 consumers, representative for Germany in age, sex and federal state, attended an online survey in August 2017.
One part of this survey is about the knowledge about selected pathogens and if those pathogens are considered as zoonotic by the consumers. The second aim of this study is to examine if there is a difference between the perceived influence of the participants in the food chain through the consumers and the explored influence in literature and where consumers must be informed more precisely.
The first findings are going to be presented on the CARO-Workshop 2017 in Berlin.
