Steep Decline in South Korea Self-Sufficiency

South Korea’s self-sufficiency rate of grain, beef and seafood sharply fell last year as imported food items appealed to consumer tastes with their lower prices and variety of flavors, according to government data on Sunday, Yonhap reported. The nation’s self-sufficiency rate of grain, excluding feed for animals, dropped to 48.4% in 2016, from 55.6% in 2010, showed the data by the ministry of agriculture, food and rural affairs. South Korea imports most of its animal feed. Including animal feed, the nation’s self-sufficiency rate for grain stood at just 24% in 2015.
