ACORN is embarking on the first-ever comprehensive consumer study on organics in the Maritimes.  

  • What are the most influential food claims or marketing messages in the Maritimes, and what are consumers’ understandings of them? 
  • What are the greatest priorities in choosing what groceries to buy?
  • What organic products are most frequently sought out that are not available in local markets? 
  • What is the willingness to pay for different local organic products?

These are some of the questions we are hoping to answer.

The data we collect will not only help existing and new farms and processors in growing the local organic supply to best meet the demand, but also provide a baseline insight to Maritime consumers’ understanding of organics. 

So if you are not a farmer/processor yourself, please take 5-10 minutes of your time to let us know about your grocery shopping preferences and priorities, your understanding of various food labels, and your interest (or disinterest) in local organic products. We value all opinions and insights!

Thank you in advance for your time! 

This research is made possible through a funding partnership between the New Brunswick Department of Agriculture, Aquaculture & Fisheries, Government of Canada, and the Nova Scotia Associations of CBDCs.

These results will be compared with responses from a professional survey panel that will ensure a representative sample of the region.
