Do-Good Dining

Ethical eateries give foodie consumers peace of mind

Implications - Cause marketing has become a major part of marketing over the last year, helping brands create positive images in the minds of consumers who want to feel good about the purchases they are making. One area where cause marketing is high is in the hospitality industry, where restaurants are basing their foods and business models on social causes, appealing to consumers who want a good meal, as well as the feeling that they have contributed to a cause.
