Food risk facing consumers

In the current context of health crises, many economic and social sciences studies have tried to describe and analyse consumer behaviour related to food risk. These studies share two premises: they consider the act of consuming as an individual behaviour and credit consumers with “risk perceptions” which direct their choice. A criticism of both axioms leads us to the question of the specificity of food risk and its political and social dimensions.
