Rob Richerson, assistant professor of marketing, and his co-author, James Mead (University of West Florida) have a forthcoming article in the Journal of Business Research titled “Package Color Saturation and Food Healthfulness Perceptions.” Across four experiments, the authors demonstrate that a learned association between food package brightness and unhealthfulness can undermine consumers' sincere efforts to choose healthful foods. The authors find that not only do consumers nonconsciously believe that bright packages contain unhealthful foods, but also believe the opposite – that muted packages contain healthful foods. As such, consumers may choose a food item in a muted package, nonconsciously believing that the food is healthful, when in fact the food may be unhealthful.
