Attitude and purchase intention towards halal fast-food purchases : evidence from an emerging African market

Attitude and purchase intention towards halal fast-food purchases : evidence from an emerging African market

market (Shamhuyenhanzva, Van Tonder, Roberts-Lombard & Hemsworth, 2016:3-4). According to Baharuddin, Kassim, Nordin and Buyong (2015:171), the growth of the halal fast- food industry is not only necessitated by religious expectations, but also by changing consumer habits and lifestyles. The varying Muslim demographic has led to an increasing social class of young, savvy and affluent Muslims who embrace a modern lifestyle, where globalisation trends continue to shape their habits, tastes and purchasing patterns. The halal market has witnessed a universal shift, with western-style grocery stores and fast-food outlets increasingly offering a wider selection of halal food products. Moreover, the halal fast-food market continues to build momentum and plays an influential role in consumer markets around the world (Elasrag, 2016:13–15). Consequently, it is important for halal fast-food retailers to understand the factors influencing the purchase intentions of these consumers when they purchase their products. Numerous research studies have investigated the interrelationships between customers’ attitudes and purchase intentions in different contexts and service settings. For example, Rahman, Asrarhaghighi and Rahman (2015:158) identified the factors affecting Muslim consumer attitudes and purchase intentions, and the interrelationship between the two when purchasing halal cosmetic products. Ali et al. (2017:538) also investigated the interrelationships between customer attitudes, antecedents and purchase intentions in the halal meat market of China. However, few studies have examined how halal awareness, religious belief, and personal societal perception relate to attitude and purchase intention as an outcome within a halal fast- food environment in South Africa. Attitude and purchase intention towards halal fast-food purchases in South Africa are also relatively novel areas of research and have received little attention as relational determinants in the South African retail environment.

Relationship between product factors, advertising, and 

purchase intention of halal cosmetic

Relationship between product factors, advertising, and purchase intention of halal cosmetic

investigated the relationship between product factors and intention to purchase Halal cosmetic products. Five product factors were examined, namely, brand, price, quality, ingredients and labelling. There are significant and positive correlations between each product factor and intention to purchase Halal products, except for brand. In contrast to some previous studies which found a positive relationship between brand and purchase intention, our study found that brand and purchase intention of halal products have a negative relationship. This result indicates that customers who intend to purchase halal cosmetics will prioritize ‘halalness’ over brand. Hence, price that is correlated positively with the intention to purchase Halal products may indicate that consumers are willing to pay higher price for these Halal products. The positive correlation between quality and intention to purchase Halal products indicates that higher quality is associated with a higher intent to purchase. Consumers always look forward to buy quality Halal products. Thus, better quality will lead to a higher intent to purchase Halal products. On the contrary, the negative correlation between ingredients and purchase intention may indicate that if consumers have doubts about the Halalness of a product’s ingredients, they may not purchase that product. The positive correlation between labelling and purchase intention indicates that as customers have higher confident in labelling of the halal products, they will have higher intention to purchase the Halal products. Consumers who can differentiate and are

Understanding of the halalan tayyiban concept towards purchase intention of halal cosmetics among young urban muslim consumers

Understanding of the halalan tayyiban concept towards purchase intention of halal cosmetics among young urban muslim consumers

In addition, understanding of the tayyib dimension is shown to have a stronger relation to the consumer’s attitudes towards halal cosmetics than do the halal dimension. This finding is in line with study conducted by Azreen Jihan and Musa (2013), which provide evidence that halal , was not a priority but the ingredient was the most important factor that may influence consumers to consume cosmetic products . This is confirmed by Ambali and Bakar (2014) that reveal health reason was found to have a stronger relation to Muslim awareness about halal consumption than halal logo. The current of the study is consistent with study of Honkanen et al. (2006) whereby ecological motives are even greater related to attitudes towards organic food than religious motives. However, this finding is in contrary with research conducted by Michaelidou and Hassan (2008) whereby ethical self identity is found to have a stronger relation to attitude towards organic food than health consciousness.

Halal food supply chain knowledge and purchase intention

Halal food supply chain knowledge and purchase intention

In certain cases, ritual cleansing exercises of trucks or containers that previously transported haram products may be necessary to ensure there is no contamination when transporting halal products. In Islam, the need for ritual cleansing and the way it is performed differ from one sect to another. To protect halal food, logistics companies provide some logistical facilities specifically to handle halal food products. For example, Kontena National and Malaysia International Shipping Company (MISC) provide special facilities for halal logistics, such as halal transportation, halal shipping, dedicated containers for halal food, and ritual cleansing services for containers. MISC is the first logistics company in Malaysia to receive recognition from the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (JAKIM) for their halal transportation logistics (Kontena Malaysia Berhad, 2014).

ENTREPRENEURIAL INTENTION AMONG POSTGRADUATE STUDENTS OF UUM MOHD ASYRAF BIN AHMAD

Tujuan utama kajian ini ialah untuk menganalisa kecenderungan keusahawanan dalam kalangan pelajar pascasiswazah Universiti Utara Malaysia. Kajian yang dilaksanakan selari dengan usaha mengalakkan penglibatan rakyat Malaysia dalam bidang keusahawanan. Oleh itu, pengkaji memilih Teori tingkah laku terancang (TPB) daripada Ajzen (1991) bagi mengenalpasti faktor-faktor yang mempengaruhi kecenderungan keusahawanan dalam kalangan pelajar pascasiswazah di UUM. Seramai 370 responden yang terdiri daripada pelajar peringkat sarjana dan doktor falsafah telah terlibat dalam kajian ini dan daripada 370 borang soal selidik yang telah diedarkan hanya 352 soal selidik yang digunakan untuk analisis seterusnya. Dapatan kajian menunjukkan sikap terhadap keusahawanan, persepsi terhadap kawalan tingkah laku dan persepsi terhadap norma memberi kesan yang positif terhadap kecenderungan keusahawanan dalam kalangan pelajar pascasiswazah UUM. Melalui analisis regresi, persepsi terhadap kawalan tingkah laku ialah faktor utama dalam menentukan kecenderungan pelajar melibatkan diri dalam aktiviti keusahawanan. Sikap terhadap keusahawanan merupakan faktor paling kurang berkesan dalam membentuk kecenderungan keusahawaan pelajar. Hasil kajian juga mendapati, terdapat perbezaan yang signifkan diantara pelajar yang mempunya ibu bapa terlibat dengan perniagaan dengan pelajar yang mempunyai ibu bapa bukan peniaga terhadap kecenderungan keusahawanan. Pelajar yang ibu bapa mereka terlibat dalam perniagaan mempunyai kecenderungan keusahawanan lebih tinggi berbanding pelajar yang ibu bapa mereka tidak terlibat dengan perniagaan. Dapatan kajian ini diharap dapat membantu pihak yang terlibat dalam menggalakkan aktiviti keusahawanan terutamanya pihak universiti bagi melahirkan lebih ramai graduan yang berminat berkecimpung dalam bidang keusahawanan.

Purchase intention towards remanufactured products : a systematic literature review

Purchase intention towards remanufactured products : a systematic literature review

The success of remanufactured products in the market is dependent on customer acceptance (Wang and Hazen, 2016; Y. Wang et al., 2018) which is mentioned as one of the main obstacles for remanufacturing industry (Vafadarnikjoo et al., 2018). This is also a reason why organizations do not challenge themselves in terms of sustainability because the profitability of remanufacturing activities is dependent on sufficient demand for these products (Wang et al., 2013) which is not high enough yet. Hence, understanding the potential customer and their perception has critical importance to have a place in the market and improve CLSC performance (Xu et al., 2017; Qu et al., 2018; Y. Wang et al., 2018). One of the ways to improve customer acceptance level suggested is that highlighting and promoting potential benefits of purchasing remanufactured products to convince customers to consider them as an option (van Weelden et al., 2016). The research focusing on marketing, and customer acceptance of remanufactured products is limited (Bittar, 2018; Matsumoto et al., 2018a, 2018b; McKie et al., 2018; Wang and Kuah, 2018).

Uncovering Indonesian Millennial's Halal Food Purchase Intention: Halal Value and Halal Logo as the Antecedents

Uncovering Indonesian Millennial's Halal Food Purchase Intention: Halal Value and Halal Logo as the Antecedents

Halal principle regulates any matters permissible for Muslims according to Islamic teaching (Haque et al., 2015). A clear application of Halal is seen in food in which a Muslim must avoid consuming “hazardous” things, though the concept is not limited to food matter only. Since Halal principle demands the food producers to produce foods with healthy diets (i.e. Toyyib) as well as hygiene and clean environment from farm to fork, the perception of Halal food relates to a good standard of safety, health, and quality aspects, naturally resides in Muslim even non-Muslim consumers (Majid et.al., 2015; Janis, 2004). A study by Golnaz et al. clarifies that Russian non-Muslims assume that due to the devout of Muslim food producers, it is less likely for them to not obey Halal principles while making Halal foods (Haque et al., 2015). This study might show a strong trust towards the claim of Halal status. On the other hand, a good perception of Halal value which resides in consumer’s minds may lead to a heavier consideration of Halal logo rather than other certifications in a food product (Ayyub, 2015; Majid, et al., 2015). Moreover, when Halal food can deliver its promise of values to consumers consistently, accordingly it will also enhance the consumer’s trust (Borzooei and Asgari, 2013; Delgado-Ballester & Munuera-Alemán, 2005).
