How Awe Might Be Awesome: the Role of Awe in Consumers’ Food Consumption and Perceptions of Misshapen Produce
In this paper, we explore the role of awe in consumers’ food consumption and perceptions of misshapen produce. Our findings show that feelings of awe increases individuals’ tendencies towards virtuous foods and positively influences their attitudes towards abnormally shaped produce. Implications for reducing food waste in society are discussed.
