A cluster analytic approach for consumer segmentation using the vegetarian/meatarian distinction.
In this study, we use cluster analysis to create a consumer segmentation scheme based on individuals' vegetarian/meatarian orientation, along with key attitudinal, personality, and demographic characteristics. Such characteristics include concern for animals, concern with health, concern for the environment, attitude toward corporate ethical practices, need for cognition, social conformity, age, gender, and level of education. In segmenting consumers along these dimensions, this research study not only expands our knowledge about consumers, but also provides useful insight for marketers of food products and services.
