Food Consumption

The consumption behavior of people may, besides the distribution according to age and country of origin, also be influenced by the fact that the number of small households and households without children is continuously increasing (status of 1995 shown in Table 3). Despite the increasing number of unemployed (especially in the new Bundesländer, Table 4) the average consumption per household still increases (Table 5). The development after 1994 slowed down but kept the trend.

Total quantities of food sold in Germany will remain on an almost constant level. But demand will develop to more convenient products to serve older people or fulfill the needs of small households. Special food items are created
