쌀 소비량 사상 최저

Consumption of Rice Falls to Record Low

 

As consumption of rice per capita in Korea fell to the lowest figures in history and the decline continues this year, the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries and Korea’s largest rice producing province Jeollanamdo and its National Agricultural Cooperate Federation in Jeonam branch are making all-out efforts to promote the consumption of rice.

According to the Agricultural Ministry and the Jeonam branch of the National Agricultural Cooperate Federation, the recently released analysis on consumption of rice indicated 184 grams per capita, the lowest figures in history.

In 2008, consumption of rice per capita was tallied at 202 grams and the downward trend has continued since then, bringing figures down to 184 grams per capita last year.

Supply rate this year marked 92 percent and the supply of rice is expected to exceed demand this year.

The Agricultural Ministry is currently promoting the 10 most popular food items made of rice and the National Agricultural Cooperate Federation is carrying out an ‘Eat Breakfast’ campaign.
