BARRAGAN, Milton C.  y  AYAVIRI, Dante. Ethics of Consumption in Food Security Management in the Canton of Santo Domingo de los Colorados, Ecuador. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.5, pp.143-156. ISSN 0718-0764.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-07642018000500143.

The objective of the present investigation was to determine how the ethics of consumption of the urban population contributes or not in the management of the food safety of Santo Domingo de los Colorados, Ecuador. To obtain the data, qualitative and quantitative techniques were used, such as interviews and surveys, using stratified random sampling based on the level of income. The results show that 51.3% of the population is not aware of the environmental and social impacts that are generated by their current consumption habits. The social and environmental problems related to consumption are contamination by domestic garbage, contamination of water sources, excessive use of agrochemicals, food waste and increasing obesity. The population is willing to pay higher prices for products with corporate social responsibility, to reduce food waste, to recycle and reduce food consumption, to contribute to food safety. In conclusion, the population, at present, does not make ethical consumption, causing several social and environmental problems that prevent the achievement of food safety for all inhabitants.
