Improvement in living standards and frequent food scares in China have led to the expansion of the organic and green food market. Green food refers to a certification scheme that is unique to China; it is comparable to but differs from organic products used in Australia. From a marketing perspective, it is critical to understand consumers and their needs, attitudes, and behaviours. Although the literature on green food is expanding, market segmentation studies are rare. This mixed-methods study contributes to the growing body of research on organic and green food consumption in China, in terms of (i) examining how the organic and green food market can be segmented based on behavioural and demographic bases, and (ii) identifying the determinants of organic and green food purchase. This study also provides some insights into how Chinese consumers view innovations in the food sector.
