Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine a brand’s green marketing and its consumers’ perception of it in order to compare these views. The idea is to find a potential gap and what effect it may have on the brand. A case study has therefore been made with the grocery market brand Coop with focus on organic food. The material used consists of texts from Coop’s website to represent their brand. The topic of all texts is organic production and its relation to Coop. To analyze the consumers’ perception of the brand, interviews has been made. Lloyd F. Bitzer’s theory of the rhetorical situation and Roland Barthes’ theory of myths, adapted to rhetoric and argumentation by Eric Bengtson, have been applied. The findings show that there is a gap between Coop and the consumers’ perception of it: Coop has an elaborate myth in all their texts about being the protectors of the Earth, while the consumers only regard the company as somewhat aware of the environment. This stands even though the company and the consumers both believe sustainability to be an important issue.
