Basically, the numbers of the per capita consumption of 1982 were increased from previous year, 1981, and those numbers are increased in next year, 1983. The numbers of per capita consumption had been increased though 19870-95 by an economic research service report. Especially, Freezing veritable and flour and cereal products increased a lot. I think that the fact that people have tended to concern about their health more affected this number. Also, those frozen vegetable and flour and cereal products had been fit people's life style more and more. however, the number of per capita consumption of coffee has been decreased. The bad effect, such as addiction, has been told by doctors and scientists, and some people have actually been trying to save the amount of coffee they drink. By the table, the major food hasn't been changed a lot, but the number of people buy has been changed by their life style and health concern.
