Mythological Dairy Connections to Nature and Rural Life

This ethnographic study explores the mythological foundation of dairy consumption in Helsinki, Finland. Implications of the study include the need to recognize the nature/culture binary in westernized urban environments. Understanding other modes of figuration that emerge within society advances consumer research on product and brand attachment.
