ABSTRACT

Purpose - This study investigated the main variables of consumer food choice motive and how they affect attitude and purchase intention toward organic foods. The study involved a multiple regression analysis to verify the influence of food choice motive on attitude toward organic food. Research Design, Data, and Methodology - Data was collected through surveys of 280 students and ordinary citizens in Seoul and the Gyeonggi region, using sampling. A multiple regression analysis was performed to confirm the impact of food choice motive on attitude toward organic food, and a regression analysis was performed to identify the impact of attitude toward organic food on purchase intention. Results - Health and environment, among food choice motives, had significant positive influence on attitude toward organic food, whereas convenience, price, and familiarity had no impact. Attitude toward organic food had significant positive influence on organic food purchase intention. Conclusions - As this study identified the impact of organic food choice motive, it may provide baseline data for marketing strategies, to understand consumer attitude toward organic food and purchase intention, and to satisfy consumer needs.
