Food consumption patterns and economic growth. Increasing affluence and the use of natural resources. Gerbens-Leenes PW(1), Nonhebel S, Krol MS. Author information: (1)University of Twente, AE, The Netherlands. [email protected] by: The objective of this paper is to project the pattern of global food demand in for both aggregate food and disaggregate food products (i.e., grain, livestock, horticulture and vegetables, and other food products). To achieve this objective, two goals are set. Economic Growth, Convergence, and World Food Demand and Supply The projected increase in world population from billion in to well over 9 billion in has received a great deal of attention as an influence on world demand for food (United Nations ).File Size: 1MB. Over the period –, the population of Tunisia increased by 70%, while annual per capita GDP tripled from to US$ (World Bank, ). In general, economic growth goes along with changes in food consumption patterns.
Although the global supply of protein has been increasing, the distribution of the increase in the protein supply is unequal. The per capita supply of vegetable protein is slightly higher in developing countries, while the supply of animal protein is three times higher in industrialized countries.

Predicting future food demand is a critical step for formulating the agricultural, economic and conservation policies required to feed over 9 billion people by while doing minimal harm to the by: 1. While projected income changes have the highest partial impact on per capita food consumption levels, population growth leads to the highest increase in total food production. The impact of technical change is amplified or mitigated by adaptations of land management intensities.
