Issue 7: A taste of food-related surveys of Chinese consumers
This issue of ASWT features a selection of food-related surveys of consumers in China and Taiwan, from food safety to wet markets. Of the eight studies, six were published in 2020 and two in 2019. One study is written by researchers in Canada, and another paper by academics in Taiwan. The rest involves individuals based in academic research institutions in China.
These studies are by no means the best or the only such studies from the past two years. The main purpose of presenting them is to give advocates a sense of the intriguing variety out there. Take dairy purchase and consumption. There are quite a few surveys on this topic.
The other purpose is to let advocacy groups know that academics in China are interested in consumer surveys and publishing their studies in English in peer-reviewed journals. So perhaps advocacy groups based outside China can collaborate with them.
