Publisher: FAO

This paper attempts to examine urban dietary patterns in India, in the backdrop of globalization and its influence on employment, incomes and market forces. The paper consists of three parts. The first part looks at the extent of globalization and urbanization and their impact on employment, incomes, imports and consumerism. The second part considers the dietary patterns of the urban population and attempts to link them to globalization. Certain aspects of the consumption patterns of the non-poor and the poor have been considered at the all-India level and across the regions in the urban areas of the country, within the limitations of the data.
