The current study investigates the relationships among marketing mix variables and brand equity dimensions in the context of state-branded food products. Structural equation modeling (SEM) was employed to explore the hypothetical associations among variables. The results illustrated that the locations where consumers purchased state-branded products and their level of exposure to product advertisements had a greater impact on consumers’ perception of state-branded food products than numerical information such as prices and the number of stores distributing the product. In addition, the results showed that when consumers were aware of a particular state-branded food product, they were more likely to remember its features and perceive the product as high quality.
