In addition to the usual review of the recent world food and agriculture situation, each issue of The State of Food and Agriculture from 1957 has included one or more special studies of problems of longer-term interest. This year's edition focuses on the second postwar decade.



The consumer

The discussion of food supplies and consumption in Chapter II was confined to the broad changes that have occurred in the share of national supplies contributed by domestic production and imports and in per caput supplies at the level of the main world regions. The present chapter examines the position of the consumer in somewhat more detail, first from the economic and then from the nutritional point of view. After a discussion of the trends in food consumption that have resulted from changes in incomes and prices, the calorie and protein content of per caput food supplies is compared with estimated requirements for as many countries as possible.
