What we do

Consumption Monitor

 

Every year, Freshfel Europe releases an updated version of its Consumption Monitor. During the last decade, the document has become increasingly important in evaluating the trends of fresh fruit and vegetable production, trade and consumption in Europe. It is a unique document looking both at the business development and the evolution of the daily diet of fresh produce in Europe.

The latest figures from the Freshfel Europe Consumption Monitor indicate that, in 2019, EU citizens consumed 349.19 g/capita/day of fruit and vegetables.

The Consumption Monitor is built upon official statistics from FAOSTAT (production) and EUROSTAT (trade). It uses the same methodology for the calculation of the consumption on an aggregate basis for the EU-27 as well as for each of the 27 member states of the European Union. However, the accuracy of the trends relies on the validity and correctness of the FAOSTAT and EUROSTAT databases. This data may be affected by unexplained variations from year to year. As such, the Freshfel Europe Secretariat suggests using this document to look for overall trends rather than individual data, given that the data is calculated with the same methodology and is therefore comparable. We thank you for taking note of these remarks and hope you understand our cautionary approach.
