New research: Danish organic products unknown to German consumers

Germany is the most important export market for Danish organic products, but now a new study shows that German consumers are largely unfamiliar with Danish organic products. This has consequences for the Danish export strategy for the German market, explains Professor John Thøgersen from Aarhus BSS at Aarhus University.

There aren’t many German consumers who prefer Danish organic products - even in northern Germany. The researchers have examined the ‘country-of-origin’ effect and have looked at what this means in relation to imported organic carrots, pork and dairy products in Germany. Photo: Colourbox.

Specific messages to teach consumers to eat a varied diet

Variety is important, but do we actually know what it means? Not quite, according to a new study from Aarhus BSS at Aarhus University. The study sends an important message to the Danish Health and Medicines Authority and other authorities and organisations that consumers find it difficult to judge what constitutes a varied diet.
