Is the nutritional crisis due to lack of money or knowledge or something else?
2016 CANADA imported 3.7 billion worth of vegetables
The value of vegetables produced in Canada rose 2.0% to $1.2 billion in 2017.
The food and beverage processing industry is the second largest manufacturing industry in Canada in terms of value of production with shipments worth $105.5 billion in 2014
Canada has positive trade balance at $2.6 billion in 2014 for processed food and beverages.
Assuming CANADA don’t export vegetables; then Canadians paid $4.9 billion for vegetables in 2016
Assuming food processing and beverage industry did not change between 2014 and 2016, then Canadians spend $102.9 billion for processed food and beverages.
Hence, in 2016, Canadians spending on vegetable is <5% compared to spending on processed food and beverages.
So the problem with low vegetable consumption seems to be pandemic;
- possibly a problem for the rich and the poor.
Is the problem with low vegetable intake financial or educational?
