Growing populations and rising living standards in 'developing countries' fuel
increasing consumption of food, particularly of higher value food items such as fruit, vegetables, and
animal source food (meat, milk, eggs and fish). Asia, with more than half of the world's population
and its high growth in disposable incomes (average incomes have grown three and five-fold between
1990 and 2008 in India and China respectively) takes a central position in shaping global
development of the agri-food sector.
