Formatted abstract
It has been widely hypothesized in convergence literature that countries with low initial consumption levels will grow at a faster rate than those with relatively higher initial consumption levels. If it can be found that consumption patterns in low-income countries are trending towards higher income countries then a major implication of this is that as diet structures change from cereal and plant based diets °to diets consisting of more livestock products there will be a marked increase in the pressure exerted on natural resources. This pressure will be particularly high due to the extremely large population mass that appears to be in the region covered by this study. In addition to this, there will also be a dramatic change in the structure of global food markets. It is the Author's objective therefore, to shed some light on changing consumption patterns in order to obtain an indication of the extent to which international food markets are set to change.
