Food Environments Food availability

Availability of vegetables



Amounts of vegetables available in a country's food supply (sum of production, imports, and net stocks minus exports, food manufacturing, feed, seed, waste, and other uses) at the national level (expressed as grams per person per day) to align to the unit typically used for dietary recommendations.


Availability of vegetables is an essential precondition, yet not a guarantee, for their consumption. Consumption of abundant fruits and vegetables is universally recommended in global and national dietary guidance.
