Purpose – This study investigates the effects of sustainable design on food policy, literacy, and socialisation to gauge consumers’ satisfaction with the general design of food well-being (FWB).
Design/methodology/approach – Using data from an online survey with 382 respondents, an empirical study applying composite-based structural equation modelling was conducted. Sustainable design for food socialisation was hypothesised to directly influence consumers’ satisfaction with the general design of FWB, whereas food policy was assumed to have an emergent effect on food literacy. Gender was a control variable used to identify the heterogeneity of the effects.
Findings – The results demonstrated that sustainable design for food policy and food literacy positively influence food socialisation and affect consumers’ satisfaction with the sustainable design for FWB. Additionally, women exhibited higher application of food knowledge and skills but less experience in FWB
than men.
Originality/value – To the best of the authors knowledge, this study is the first to examine the emergent influence of food policy from a design perspective, with implications for industrial practitioners, policymakers, and academic research. This study also provides possible avenues for future sustainability and food product design research.
