Food and Agriculture Statistics

Food and commodity balances 2010–2020. Global, regional and country trends

FAO's Statistics Division compiles Food Balance Sheet (FBS) statistics for 181 countries. FBS present a comprehensive picture of the agrifood situation of a country in a specified reference period, showing the pattern of a country's food supply and utilizations. 

The new release of the 2020 FBS data includes six countries for which FBS had not been published before. Furthermore, the release comes with new “commodity balances”, a subset of supply and utilization accounts that provide information on supply trends for 13 non-food items, including textiles, tobacco and other agricultural products used for industrial purposes.
