by Jean C. Buzby, Hodan Farah Wells, Aylin Kumcu, Biing-Hwan Lin, Gary Lucier, and Agnes Perez

Administrative Publication No. (AP-050) 40 pp, November 2010

cover image for ap050 The Senate Report 111-039 accompanying S. 1406, the 2010 Agriculture Appropriations Bill, requested that the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Economic Research Service (ERS) prepare and publish a report regarding consumer perceptions of canned fruits and vegetables. In the absence of consumer surveys, the report relies on consumption and spending estimates to reveal attitudes of the U.S. population toward canned produce. This report updates Canned Fruit and Vegetable Consumption in the United States: Report to Congress (October 2008), using more recent data through 2008, where available.

Keywords: Canned, consumption, fruit, food availability, food intake, food loss, vegetable
