Russians eat too little fruit

Russians eat too little fruitRussians eat too little fruit The average Russian consumes in a year is not more than 1/3 of the required amount of fruit and vegetables. The doctors say that this entails deterioration of the physical condition of the nation. Today Russian consumes fruit from 32 kg (regions) up to 60 kg (Moscow) per year. For comparison: in Western countries, this level is 2-3 times higher (in the United States - 126 kg in Canada - 126 kg in Australia - 135 kg). At approximately the same level with Russia on the level of fruit consumption was only China - 50 kg per person per year. According to experts, the Russian fruit and vegetable market is still far from saturation. Low intake is associated with high prices and the established opinion of compatriots, which the producers called prejudice. For example, 87% of respondents believe that Russia has no organic ingredients, and more than half believe that we receive the fruits worse than in the West. The capacity of the market of fresh fruits and vegetables today is difficult to determine, experts say. First, some goods are released illegally across the borders of the former Soviet republics. Secondly, according to the Fruit and vegetable Alliance, about 80% of Russian fruit is produced on private land and cannot be controlled. Sample data for the Moscow show that the capital is consumed about 6-8 thousand tons of vegetables and fruits every week. Source: Izvestia and Madlena.Ru.
