Slovenia: Consumption of vegetables is increasing

By: J.S., STA

Slovenians eat more and more vegetables, official statistics suggest. In 2019, a total of 246,000 tonnes of vegetables were consumed, which is about 118 kilogrammes per capita and up 50% compared to 2000, the Statistics Office said this week to mark the International Year of Fruits and Vegetables.

Slovenians eat more vegetables than the country produces. In 2019, the vegetable self-sufficiency rate was 43%. The rate was the lowest in 2010, at 30%, and highest in 2000, at 47%.
Farmers produced over 120,000 tonnes of vegetables in 2019, while Slovenians consumed 267,000 tonnes of fruit in 2019.
