Chinese Have Less Grain on Dinner Table

The annual per capita grain consumption in China averaged 206 kg last year, making up 55 percent of each person's total food consumption, according to survey results announced here Tuesday, the world food day.

Official statistics show on average each person in China consumes 110 kg of vegetables, seven kg of sugar, 25.3 kg of meat, 11.8 kg of eggs, 5.5 kg of milk and 11.7 kg of aquatic product a year.

Owing to steady growth of grain output, farmers no longer take increase of grain output as their main objective, and now are trying new means to improve quality of farm crops.
