Factors affecting farmers’ intention to maintain quality certification
What is it about?
A high percentage of certified farm businesses leave quality certification schemes some years after certification. The study explores farmers’ intention to stay under a quality certification scheme, and the factors that impact this intention.
Why is it important?
To our knowledge, there are no extant studies exploring farmers’ intention to maintain certification. In addition, we propose a novel theoretical framework, which should also be used in cases where quality-related changes in enterprises impact the income and quality of life of the enterprise owners, for instance in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)
