Face to face interviews were carried out with 166 consumers who were determined via proportional sampling method. A Five-Point Likert Scale was used to define the perceptions consumer and Multidimensional Scaling Analysis was used for determining the perception dimensions.

Özet

                    Bu çalışmanın amacı Çanakkale’deki yaş meyve ve sebze tüketicilerinin, yaş meyve ve sebzelerdeki gıda güvenliği algılarının ölçülmesidir. Oransal Örnekleme Formülü ile belirlenen 166 tüketici ile yüz yüze anketler yapılmıştır. Tüketicilerin algılarının ölçülmesi için 5’li Likert Ölçekli yargılardan, algı boyutlarının ölçülmesi için ise Çok Boyutlu Ölçekleme Analizinden yararlanılmıştır. Çalışma sonuçlarına göre; tüketiciler yaş meyve ve sebzelerin hormone, pestisit, gübre kalıntısı içerdiğini ve Genetiği Değiştirilmiş Organizmalar kullanıldığını düşünmektedir. Dahası, tüketicilerin yaş meyve ve sebzelerde gıda güvenliği ile ilgili ortak ve farklı algıları da çalışmada ele alınmıştır. Gıda güvenliği ile ilgili tespit edilen sorunlara devlet, üretici, tüketici ve araştırmacılar açısından öneriler getirilmiştir.
