S.Korean rice consumption hits lowest for decades
South Koreans' average rice consumption fell last year to its lowest level for decades as people ate more meat and vegetables, a government survey said Tuesday.

The National Statistical Office said average consumption was 76.9 kilograms (168.5 pounds), a decline of 2.4 percent from 2006.

It said the decrease has been going on since 1984 when annual per capita consumption reached 130.1 kg.

Consumption of meat and vegetables increased 5.3 percent and 5.8 percent respectively last year compared to 2006. South Koreans also ate more fish and processed food including bread and wheat-based noodles.

"Improved living conditions have caused people to opt for greater variety in their diets and that is affecting rice consumption," a National Statistical Office official told Yonhap news agency.

The official said per capita rice consumption is still higher than in Japan and Taiwan.
