Undoubtedly, consumers of green products have formed a market tribe that has strengthened its power in recent years. Apart from the ethical side of buying organic products, they are willing to pay more for a green product compared to a conventional one. In marketing literature, packaging is considered to be as a valuable feature of a product that may motivate consumers to proceed to a purchase. The purpose of the present study is to investigate how various packaging features (eco-labels, image, shape, colour) of organic agricultural products affect consumers' eye reactions and as a result influence consumers' perception, attitude and buying behaviour.
