  • Abstract
  • 1. To average consumers in most countries, the GATT, SPS and TBT Agreements, the Codex Alimentarius Commission, the World Trade Organization and other agencies that address food quality and food safety issues at the international level are unfamiliar, abstract, distant entities. (fao.org)
  • engagement
  • If deliberative democracy researchers become involved in critical frame reflection in consumer-oriented policy making, changes can be made that help reduce environmental harms and strengthen public engagement in political consumerism. (lu.se)
  • quality
  • 2. At the same time, food quality and safety are universal and personal consumer concerns. (fao.org)
  • Everyone cares about what they eat, and food quality and safety rank high on the list of consumer product issues in both developed and developing countries. (fao.org)
  • Those aspects of food quality and safety that most concern consumers are likely to vary from country to country, from North to South, from developed to developing societies, from large to small countries, and within each of these groups of countries as well. (fao.org)
  • 8. Most consumers, to differing degrees, are concerned with and have at least some knowledge of the quality and safety of the foods they eat. (fao.org)
  • Sensory quality, freshness, and nutritional benefits of foods are aspects that most consumers consider each time they buy groceries. (fao.org)
  • results
  • The results of an experiment suggest that introducing monetary rewards does not contribute to the number of new product ideas generated by a single consumer or the novelty of his/ her ideas, and when the reward is relatively small, it can even be harmful. (deepdyve.com)
  • Factors that might cause actual results to differ materially from future results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, general economic conditions, the consumer spending environment for large ticket items, competition in the retail furniture industry and other uncertainties detailed from time to time in the Company's report filed with the SEC.

  • high
  • Among women with high depressive symptoms the gradient of association with social participation increased sharply with better lower extremity function compared with non-depressed women, where the gradient of association was moderate. (springer.com)
  • overall
  • The pending proceeding at the FERC provides the commission with an opportunity to put in place rules that will facilitate greater levels of demand responsiveness in the wholesale markets and lower overall prices to all consumers. (plantservices.com)
  • The Area Manager's Office has overall responsibility for Consumer Affairs in the HSE Dublin North East Region. (hse.ie)
  • power
  • People really need an optimal and efficient way to 'broadcast' the power flows from a few of central power generators to a large amount of consumers, then, Smart Grid came out. (wustl.edu)
  • social
  • The aim of the current study was to examine the interactive effects of depressive symptoms and lower extremity functioning on social participation for a group of moderately to severely disabled older women. (springer.com)
  • After adjusting for demographics and risk factors, each unit increase in the Short Physical Performance Battery (SPPB) score was associated with a 0.31 point increase in satisfaction with social participation for the non-depressed group, and 2.04 points for the depressed group. (springer.com)
  • Depressive symptoms and lower extremity functioning interact to affect satisfaction with social participation. (springer.com)
  • aspects
  • Consumers also recognize that there are food safety aspects over which they have no control-pesticide residues, or mycotoxins, for example-and they rely on governments to set safety standards, and on industry and governments to ensure that foods on the market meet those standards. (fao.org)
  • great
  • To represent consumers effectively in food policymaking discussions, consumer organizations also need a great deal of information. (fao.org)
  • money
  • Drawing on an experiment in which participants generated new product ideas in return for real prizes, this paper aims to answer these questions and explores whether money can buy participation and creativity in crowdsourcing platforms. (deepdyve.com)
  • generally
  • Consumers generally presume that foods offered for sale should be safe, but also realize that they have a role to play in ensuring food safety-washing fresh produce, thoroughly cooking meats, and so forth. (fao.org)
  • ways
  • If consumers don't 'buy into' new food technologies and new sources of foods, the market may become dysfunctional in several ways. (fao.org)
  • Policy
  • 4. Consumers, and consumer organizations that represent the voice of consumers in policy forums, have not been so prominently involved in most international food policy debates. (fao.org)
  • 5. There are many reasons why consumer organizations should play, and I believe in the future will play, a larger role than they have to date in food policy decision making. (fao.org)
  • changes
  • Positive changes in the concept of participation were obtained, according to the five areas evaluated: leadership, needs assessment, organization, management, and mobilization of resources. (ugent.be)
  • terms
  • As the examples above clearly indicate, managerial practices in terms of rewarding consumer creativity in ideation activities are far from uniform. (deepdyve.com)
  • In terms of stimulating novelty and motivating consumers to generate multiple ideas, however, even sizable rewards appeared to have no effect, and smaller rewards could even be detrimental. (deepdyve.com)
  • interests
  • 6. We should not presume that business and government always have consumers' best interests in mind, or can automatically tell what consumers would like them to do. (fao.org)
  • among
  • Foremost among these reasons is the need for consumer acceptance of innovations in the food marketplace. (fao.org)
