Croatia 30th on World’s Most Plentiful and Healthiest Food Index

Croatia Week

Croatia was ranked 30th out of 125 nations in a ranking of countries with the  most nutritious, plentiful and healthiest food...

The Netherlands were ranked number one on the index, which was compiled by Oxfam and ranked the nations on the availability, quality and affordability of food and dietary health. The index also took into account the percentage of underweight children, food diversity and access to clean water, as well as negative health outcomes such as obesity and diabetes.

France and Switzerland were in second and third place respectively, while the USA, Japan and the UK failed to make the top 10. European nations dominated the top 10, with Ireland, Italy, Portugal and Luxembourg tied in 8th spot with Australia.

“The Netherlands have created a good market that enables people to get enough to eat. Prices are relatively low and stable and the type of food people are eating is balanced,” Oxfam senior researcher Ms Deborah Hardoon said.

Last on the index was the African nation of Chad, behind Ethiopia and Angola.
