    Abstract

    Using Fishbein's multiattribute model as a theoretical background, this paper develops an empirical model to assess and identify attributes of agrobiotechnology and individual characteristics determining public acceptance of biotech foods. This paper uses a database collected in the United States and United Kingdom in November, 2000.
