Journal of International Food & Agribusiness Marketing
Deadline: June 1st, 2020
Food marketing research significantly increases the impact of academic achievements on the daily life of consumers and business. A large body of literature covers food marketing and discusses potential improvements in the marketing of several food categories in various contexts. But not all food is equal and the market responds to different issues surrounding various products. Indeed, land use for food production is reaching the point of saturation so leading to a rise in awareness of issues related to the environment and health in the market amongst others.
That is where seafood comes in; an alternative protein source, addressing various current concerns in the market and governmental policy. However, seafood is not consumed to the recommended level by many people, and this is noted across a variety of countries/regions. Various challenges in the market are apparent such as availability due to logistics in production, quality due to sensitivity of the raw material, image due to traditions and popular media, lack of convenience, limited aesthetic and sensory appeals e.g. smell, fish-bones, etc. These, along with other factors act as barriers to expanding the seafood market. High quality research on understanding the seafood market and overcoming such barriers is the central topic of this special issue on Seafood Marketing.
