Food availability of establishment, ratio

Food availability refers to food available for consumption, expressed in edible weight, not adjusted for losses, such as waste and/or spoilage, in stores, households, private institutions or restaurants or losses during preparation.

Establishment refers to the level at which accounting data required to measure production is available (principal inputs, revenues, salaries and wages). The establishment, as a statistical unit, is defined as the most homogeneous unit of production for which the business maintains accounting records from which it is possible to assemble all the data elements required to compile the full structure of the gross value of production (total sales or shipments, and inventories), the cost of materials and services, and labour and capital used in production.

The data for this variable are reported using the following measurements:

  • Kilograms per person, per year
  • Litres per person per year
