Global food consumption is increasing, and natural resources are limited. A change in consumers’ purchase behavior is fundamental to cope with the objectives of sustainable development. Our focus is on consumers’ attitude toward those products that reduce the dependence on pesticides (integrated pest management – IPM). Through a survey analysis, the paper aims at illustrating the factors that influence the food choices of European and Chinese consumers. The results obtained through descriptive statistics and regressions allow us to identify which consumer categories are more aware of IPM products and which are still far from a complete knowledge of IPM and their potentialities. The results arising from this chapter can be used to suggest policies useful to achieve a more sustainable consumption behavior.
