This article presented a meta-analysis of responsible food consumption. The theory of planned behaviour (TPB) was tested by meta-analytic structural equation modelling (MASEM) accessing 18 primary studies on 7,454 cumulative samples. The results showed that social norms were the strongest antecedents of attitude toward responsible food, followed by health consciousness and perceived behavioural control (PBC). We also detected a strong and positive effect on attitude toward consumers’ behavioural intention. The attitude toward responsible food also works as a partial mediator in the relationships between social norms, health consciousness and PBC and consumers’ behavioural intentions. Finally, we detected a partial negative moderation effect of the country’s economic context on the relationship between attitude and behavioural intentions.
