The topic of food is not only centered around consumption, it involves pleasure and passion and has a strong connection to the national cultural identity. Be it the French croissant, the South Korean kimchi or pasta from Italy, food is as diverse as the people inhabiting this world. Furthermore, food is a fundamental part of private household spending. Compared to other goods, its relative importance sinks with a rising income, however. Global revenues from food keep increasing by 5% annually, due to the steadily growing worldwide population numbers.
