Italy Food and Drink Report Q4 2010
A strong food culture means that Italy has one of the highest levels of per capita spending on food and drink in the world. However, over the last ten years consumption has been adversely affected by relatively low economic growth and unfavourable demographics, with an ageing population and low birth rate. The country is now emerging from a deep recession but these issues are expected to continue hampering consumption growth over the next five years and Italy’s consumption forecasts are therefore among the lowest in the Western Europe region.
