Abstract: 

The growing human population is causing food security concerns in many countries. As food security is the access by all people to enough food, the world must reduce food waste. This study investigates the factors leading to consumer adoption of intelligent food containers (IFC) – an emerging technology that can store food, monitor food quality and minimize food waste. In particular, the study focuses on the role of companies’ green marketing in affecting consumers’ willingness to adopt IFC. So doing, the study develops and tests a model and related hypotheses by using the partial least squares structural equation approach. The model was constructed based on the integration of Technology Adoption Model (TAM) with green marketing. An online survey was used to collect data from 153 households in Canada. The results suggest that improved TAM with the addition of green marketing mix is useful in explaining consumers’ purchase intention toward IFC.
