Les produits de terroir : vecteurs de valorisation des aménités ?

This work is an approach to the potential valorization of amenities via food products. Are food products made in a region with amenities more valuable than the ones coming from a less attractive setting?? Our results come from an experiment where the values of two cheeses from two distinct areas in the French Alps are compared. They indicate that the amenities of a region are part of the affective value of the product but impact economic value only under specific conditions. Three conditions are particularly important?: a well-defined territory with a strong identity, amenities that are particularly appreciated by the consumers and perceived congruence between the product and the territory.
