Abstract

This study estimates the response of Japanese consumers f demand for poultry meat to the food safety regulations at the border using the almost ideal demand system (AIDS) with a particular focus on the maximum residue limits (MRL) on pesticides and veterinary drugs. The AIDS model allows for differing demand response to the food safety regulations across goods from different origins as consumers tend to rearrange their consumption within a product category. The results indicate the asymmetry of the demand response to a change in MRLs and avian-influenza bans. Tightening the MRLs reduces domestic demand for poultry meat as well as demand for imports from China and the US, and increases demand for imports from Brazil. Thus, the assessment of the impact of regulatory policies needs to take consumers f flexible rearrangement of bundles into account.
