Rice Consumption Among Koreans Continues to Drop

Data from Statistics Korea show South Korea’s per capita annual rice consumption fell an average 2.3 percent annually over the past three decades.

According to the data, Per capita average annual rice consumption hit a record low of 61 kilograms in 2018, compared with a record high of 136.4 kilograms in 1970.

Rice is a key staple food for Koreans, but its consumption has been on a steady decline since 1980 when per capita average annual rice consumption stood at 132.4 kilograms.

The decline is mainly blamed on changes in the diets and eating habits of South Koreans.
