Andrea Tangari receives marketing and society award

Mike Ilitch School of Business Associate Professor of Marketing Andrea Tangari was awarded the 2020 Thomas C. Kinnear Award for her co-authored paper published in The Journal of Public Policy & Marketing (JPP&M). Named after Thomas C. Kinnear, the award honors articles that make the most significant contribution to the understanding of marketing and public policy issues within a three-year time period. The paper was titled, “The Squander Sequence: Understanding Food Waste at Each Stage of the Consumer Decision-Making Process,” and it appeared in the September 2016 issue (Vol. 35, No. 2) of JPP&M. 

Tangari co-authored with Lauren G. Block, Punam A. Keller, Beth Vallen, Sara Williamson, Mia M. Birau, Amir Grinstein, Kelly L. Haws, Monica C. LaBarge, Cait Lamberton, Elizabeth S. Moore, Emily M. Moscato and Rebecca Walker Reczek. 

The review committee stated, “The ‘Squander Sequence’ article investigates the problem of food waste. Despite the complexity of the problem, the Committee believed this research provided a framework that is elegant and clear, yet sufficiently comprehensive, to aid in our understanding of the key policy and research issues. The authors make a broad contribution to advancing knowledge, theory, and practice. High-impact and generative research collaboration, such as that demonstrated in this article, sparks policy ideas, conversation, and future research with the power to advance well-being at the individual and societal level.”
