Abstract

Cet article a pour but d’analyser les attitudes des consommateurs et leur consentement à payer pour la viande bovine biologique (un substitut à la viande bovine conventionnelle) immédiatement à la suite de la crise de la « vache folle » et à plus long terme. Il est basé sur deux enquêtes téléphoniques réalisées par recrutement aléatoire en Italie, l’une en 2001 (peu après la crise de la vache folle), l’autre en 2003. L’analyse est basée sur une méthode innovatrice d’évaluation contingente qui tient compte de la possibilité pour les consommateurs de décider la quantité de leur achat face à un prix proposé. Les résultats montrent que, bien que les effets de la crise de la « vache folle » se soient affaiblis avec le temps, ils ont laissé des signes permanents sur le comportements des consommateurs. La conclusion principale est que la demande de viande bovine biologique a diminuée, mais est devenue moins élastique.
