    Transitions to Food Sustainability with Intergenerational and Ecological Justice.Claudia Patricia Alvarez-Ochoa, Jaime Alberto Rendón Acevedo & Yenny Naranjo Tuesta - 2024 - Food Ethics 9 (2):1-6.
    The negative impacts of agriculture on the environment and the inequity that limits access to healthy food for the entire population impede sustainable development. This article reflects contributions to food security and alternatives for transitioning to sustainable food systems. It is concluded that food, as a human right, is a complex and transdisciplinary issue, which must be integrated as a transversal axis in the economic, social, environmental, governance, and cultural dimensions to contribute to sustainable development and therefore the convenience of (...)

    When Tradition Meets Innovation: A Mixed-Methods Investigation of Factors Influencing Chinese Consumers' Purchase Intentions for Meat Substitutes.Wenxuan Guo & Dawan Wiwattanadate - 2024 - Food Ethics 9 (2):1-24.
    Meat consumption has long been a staple in China, but its environmental and social impacts have prompted the development of a market for meat substitutes. However, the question remains whether meat substitutes can coexist with traditional food culture in the context of sustainable development. To address this issue, the researchers used a mixed methods approach to examine the factors influencing Chinese consumers' purchase intentions for meat substitutes. This study conducted an online survey to explore the demographic characteristics of Chinese consumers (...)

    Expert Views on Communicating Genetic Technology Used in Agriculture.Jillian Hendricks, Daniel M. Weary & Marina A. G. von Keyserlingk - 2024 - Food Ethics 9 (2):1-17.
    The use of genetic technology in agriculture is viewed by some as the next frontier of farming but others may view it as a threat. The aim of the current study was to describe the views of experts working in agricultural genetics regarding how best to communicate genetic technology with a broader audience (e.g., clientele, the public). We recruited 10 experts working in roles that involve communication about genetic technology in agriculture. Using semi-structured interviews, we asked participants to describe how (...)

    Are Animals Needed for Food Supply, Efficient Resource Use, and Sustainable Cropping Systems? An Argumentation Analysis Regarding Livestock Farming.Olle Torpman & Elin Röös - 2024 - Food Ethics 9 (2).
    It has been argued that livestock farming is necessary to feed a growing population, that it enables efficient use of land and biomass that would otherwise be lost from the food system, that it produces manure that is necessary for crop cultivation, and helps improve the sustainability of cropping systems by inclusion of perennial forage crops in otherwise low-diversity crop rotations. In this paper, we analyze these arguments in favor of livestock farming. Through argumentation analysis based on scientific data, we (...)

  6. Modeling the Significance of Knowledge, Beliefs, and Norms on Intention to Consume Plant-based Meat Alternatives in China.Zhong Xueyun, Abdullah Al Mamun & Naeem Hayat - 2024 - Food Ethics 9 (2):1-21.
    The consumption of meat is a topic of concern because of its environmental and ethical implications. Consequently, plant-based meat alternatives have gained popularity. However, the consumption of these alternatives remains limited and understanding the factors that influence consumers’ intentions to consume them is vital. Current study aims to examine the crucial factors (i.e., knowledge of sustainable food production, problem awareness, outcome efficacy, descriptive social norms, injunctive social norms, and personal norms) that affect consumers’ intentions to consume plant-based meat alternatives, promoting (...)

    Societal Implications of Personalized Pricing in Online Grocery Shopping.Jinho Jung, Nicole Olynk Widmar & Jayson L. Lusk - 2024 - Food Ethics 9 (1):1-17.
    Attention to big data analytics is ubiquitous and growing given the online shopping revolution and its potential to generate individual-specific actionable datasets which were previously unavailable or cumbersome to cultivate. However, the food industry has not drawn much attention to discussions of individualized pricing strategies using online grocery datasets. Considering growth of the online grocery market and consumers data abundance to grocers, this brief viewpoint article focuses on potentials of incorporating big data analytics into pricing strategies in online grocery markets.

    “Frequently Asked Questions” About Genetic Engineering in Farm Animals: A Frame Analysis.Katherine E. Koralesky, Heidi J. S. Tworek, Marina A. G. von Keyserlingk & Daniel M. Weary - 2024 - Food Ethics 9 (1):1-20.
    Calls for public engagement on emerging agricultural technologies, including genetic engineering of farm animals, have resulted in the development of information that people can interact and engage with online, including “Frequently Asked Questions” (FAQs) developed by organizations seeking to inform or influence the debate. We conducted a frame analysis of FAQs webpages about genetic engineering of farm animals developed by different organizations to describe how questions and answers are presented. We categorized FAQs as having a regulatory frame (emphasizing or challenging (...)

    Ethical Perspectives on Food Morality: Challenges, Dilemmas and Constructs.Diosey Ramon Lugo-Morin - 2024 - Food Ethics 9 (1):1-27.
    This study examines the concept of food morality and explores its implications for today's world. The analysis carried out allowed us to develop a theoretical construct that approaches food morality from a holistic and interconnected perspective, providing us with a new way of understanding it. This new perspective on food morality will serve as an overarching framework for guiding individual choices, public policy making, and transformative actions needed to address the complex challenges facing food systems in the modern world. The (...)

    Relational Animal Ethics (and why it isn’t easy).Josh Milburn - 2024 - Food Ethics 9 (1):1-11.
    In Just Fodder: The Ethics of Feeding Animals, I explore a range of overlooked practical questions in animal ethics and the philosophy of food, developing a new approach to animal ethics. According to the position I defend, animals have negative rights based on their possession of normatively significant interests, and we have positive obligations towards (and concerning) animals based on our normatively salient relationships with them. Gary O’Brien, Angie Pepper, Clare Palmer, and Leon Borgdorf offer a range of insightful challenges (...)

    Discussion of Josh Milburn’s Just Fodder: The Ethics of Feeding Animals.Angie Pepper - 2024 - Food Ethics 9 (1):1-9.
    In Just Fodder: The Ethics of Feeding Animals, Josh Milburn thinks through the implications of feeding animals by focusing on the relationships between humans and three different groups of animals: (1) animal companions; (2) animal neighbours; and (3) wild animals. In my comments, I concentrate on how the actions and agency interests of these animals problematise some of Milburn’s assumptions and normative prescriptions. My overall aim is to show how giving animal agency more prominence in our thinking about what we (...)

    From Nutritional Capability to Food Capability: Measurement of Multidimensional Food Poverty in Japan.Haruka Ueda - 2024 - Food Ethics 9 (1):1-18.
    Amartya Sen’s work has contributed to shifting our focus from food availability to food access and utilisation, together called ‘nutritional capability’. Existing food insecurity instruments have been informed partially by the capability approach, but remain focused on material deprivation and its economic sub-dimensions. This narrow focus has become problematic, particularly in high-income countries, where material deprivation is largely overcome and food poverty manifests itself differently from that in low-income countries. Food poverty in high-income countries should thus be approached from a (...)
