  • Although food related lifestyle has been widely discussed over the last ten years, the majority of research on food related lifestyle has been only conducted in terms of a variable-centered approach. But, recently there is a growing body of research on food related lifestyle profiles over the last three years from the view of a person-centered approach. This study conducted both a cluster analysis and a latent profile analysis (LPA) to identify the patterns of potential food related lifestyle customer profiles based on the five components on the sample of customer, who bought organic products (n=509). The results of each statistical analysis showed both quantitatively and qualitatively different types of food related lifestyle customer profiles even though there were similar types of profiles identified in common between these two analyses. These various profiles were then compared with customer's level of buying behaviors (e.g., buying attitude and buying intentions). Results showed that food related lifestyle profiles with respect to the high level of interesting in dietary life in terms of health and safety are associated with the higher level of buying behaviors. Based on the results, implications for food related lifestyle literature, practices and future research are discussed.

  • The aim of this study was to identify sushi choices underlying food-related lifestyle and to study the sushi attribute. The Food Choice Questionnaire (FCQ), the most popular tool for lifestyle research, which measures the relative importance of nine factors important in food choice, and food-related lifestyle was administered to 200 Americans (over 20 years of age) residing in Korea. From an analysis of food-related lifestyle through factor analysis, four factors emerged: health, taste, economy, and convenience. The Food Choice Questionnaire (FCQ) structure was verified using factor analysis, and eight factors were found: mood, natural content, health, sensory appeal, convenience, weight control, familiarity and price. These data are important in demonstrating the different motives underlying sushi choice. Moreover, the results suggest that an American's food-related lifestyle is considerably different in consumer behavior and sushi choice. Further research is needed to test our hypotheses.
