There have been several trials to define the notions "canned food industrial product" and "canned food". Definitions exist both from industrial and quality sides. However, we think that neither of these definitions are able to cover the product groups properly that is why consumers were invited to try to define new notions using their emotions and views and to decide about the different product-groups whether they belong to "canned food industrial product" or "canned food", or neither of them. During the research focus-group interviews have been made in two locations. Summarising the answers of the consumers, the "canned food industrial product" is best defined by the following: "non-perishable, long-lasting foods made by the canned food industry, sold in tins, jars, tubes, and made from meats, vegetables and fruits". The separate definition of "canned food" is important information, according to which "canned food is long-lasting food that is preserved in tins".
