Abstract

Ecological agriculture synthesizes a variety of concepts associated with agricultural practices and their socio-economic impacts and consumer behaviour. In general, it can be argued, ecological agri-business must be ecologically sound, economically viable, and socially responsible (Ikerd, 1994). In this article the situational analysis of ecological agri-business in Western Europe and Lithuania is presented within the framework of eco-marketing and responsible consumer behaviour.
