Global food consumption growth and changes in consumer preferences
10 September 2019
Due to two major developments in the past two decades at a global level - income growth and changes in consumer preferences -, food consumption has been growing at a faster pace than world population. These developments have resulted in a consumption increase of products of higher value (such as meat and dairy products) in emerging economies. In parallel, rising societal and environmental concerns in developed economies have influenced consumer preferences, leading to lower red meat consumption for example. These are among the main findings of the ‘Global food supply and demand, consumer trends and trade challenges’ market brief, published today by the Commission.
Regarding wheat, the EU is the second largest global user with around 250 kg per capita, after the Black Sea region. EU consumption has been growing steadily over time, driven mainly by the development of the livestock sector due to the use of wheat in animal feed.
