This study uses conjoint analysis to analyze consumers’ preferences for geographic indications (GI) bananas by examining the effects of production methods (inorganic, organic, certified organic, and natural), quality attributes (taste, perishability, medicinal, and nutritional), and price premiums (prices of GI bananas relative to prices of other bananas). Consumers were surveyed for demographic, economic, and taste and preference characteristics. The results show that consumers prefer GI bananas for their medicinal properties, natural production method, and lower price premium.
