C4. the Role of Attachment to a Human Brand in Improving Eating Habits

This research studies behavioural change by demonstrating the power of a human brand in influencing eating habits (through a culinary blog). A netnography and eleven interviews identify four categories of behavioural changes and substantiate the role of attachment. Two attachment antecedents are identified: brand-self connection and satisfaction of individual needs.
