Turkish Consumers' Response to Westernised Ethical Consumption Culture: an Acculturation Theory Approach

Using Berry’s (1980) acculturation framework, we investigate Turkish consumers’ responses towards westernised ethical consumer culture. Focus groups and ethnographic observations stretched over 18 months identify four consumer segments that show different acculturation attitudes, and two parallel marketing structures which are favoured by different consumer groups.
