From Country-Of-Origin to Country-Of-Consumption: the Institutional Journey of Consumer Trust in Food

This study finds that multiple Country-of-origin cues collectively contribute to building trust in food through institutional food regulation of each country involved in the globalised food provisioning. Country-of-consumption is newly identified as equally important in trust building, while a gap of trust may exist between countries of different food regulations.
