"This book presents important and useful insights pertaining to organic food marketing. In a market where both consumer interest in as well as confusion about these products is high, this book provides perspectives and guidance to scholars, practitioners, policy makers, and consumers on how to make more informed decisions and, consequently, enhanced choices about organic foods. This compilation of views weaves together the divergent and sometimes competing themes that exist about these products such as despite consumer beliefs that organic foods are better for them, consumers also dismiss as marketing hype the information on organic food labels. The result of this book's assembling of organic food marketing viewpoints is an interesting, compelling, and needed synthesis of this divergent topical area." - Les Carlson, Nathan J. Gold Distinguished Professorship in Marketing, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
