The aim of this work is to investigate consumers´ perceptions of safety in Argentina and identify factors that help explain consumers' willingness to pay for different attributes related safety of the beef products, including, a hypothetical hygiene certification in handling and retailing.

The results indicate a positive willingness to pay for fresh meat attributes such as personalized attention in a butcher counter, the presence of a "safety certification" in the place of purchase and the bright red color on the product.
