- Ugly product
- Reverse socialization
Based on societal aspiration concerning food waste, a new offer has been proposed to consumers by retailers called “ugly” products. It concerns products which are usually discarded from the sale because they do not match aesthetic standardized criteria. Given the low level of awareness within the adult market towards these products, it would be interesting to focus on the children’s receptiveness. Our purpose is to know, firstly, how this new offer of products modifies the perceptions of children, as well as their behavioral intentions. Secondly, to better understand the psychological mechanism specific to unaesthetic which could justify these inferences of perception. Finally, how to modify the value of these products will be investigated.
