More vegetables and fish, less meat in last 20 years in Germany
The buying conduct of the German population has changed quite a lot in some areas. Striking for instance are the changes in the area of consumption spending for foodstuff. The German statistical bureau Destatis recently mentioned, that for instance the demand for meat products decreased by 17,8% between 1991 and 2011. The demand for vegetables increased, however, by 35,1%. This same applies to fish, the demand for which increased by 15,3%.
