    Koreans' consumption of rice fell to a record low last year as diets continued to become more Westernized.

    Statistics Korea said on Thursday that average rice consumption was 57.7 kg per person, a 2.5-percent decline on-year. It has declined by about 50 percent since 1990.

    Intake of other staples including beans and potatoes rose more than 6 percent on-year to 8.7 kg per person.
