Consumer perceptions of food safety in animal source foods choice and consumption in Nairobi’s informal settlements
Animal-source foods are high-quality nutrient-dense products key to reducing stunting and micronutrient deficiencies. However, their consumption among the poorest households in urban informal settlements is low. Several drivers beyond price, including health considerations have been reported to drive animal-source food choice and consumption among consumers.
This study explored consumer perceptions of food safety associated with animal-source food consumption in urban informal settlements in Nairobi, Kenya with a view to unpacking the health considerations driving their choice and consumption.
