Streszczenie

The aim of the article is to assess the awareness of consumer rights among people shopping for food online. The study was carried out on 529 respondents shopping for food online. The obtained results showed that the majority of the respondents assess their awareness of consumer rights in the purchase of food online as good. Nevertheless, part of the respondents failed to unequivocally and clearly respond to statements concerning the level of their awareness. The study findings indicate the need for education in the consumer rights of people shopping for food online. This seems to be particularly justified in light of growing interest in online shopping, including online shopping for food.
