Household consumption in 1996: food and produce budgets

In 1996 French household consumption rose 1.9%, marking a slight recovery driven by the decline in savings (with stagnating income levels). Food consumption rose 0.3% moving into third place among household expenditures for the first time. Earlier disposable income allocation trends are confirmed, with the main variations year-on-year pertaining to savings and purchases of durable goods (notably cars).
