Data Food Networking (DAFNE) aims at the creation of a pan-European food data bank based on household budget surveys. The DAFNE II project, based on the experience gained from DAFNE I, analysed HBS data from Ireland, Luxembourg, Norway, Spain, Greece and the U.K., and comparable results on food availability were produced. Like the data of DAFNE I, this data firmly documents the remarkable disparity of food habits among European countries and that there appears to be important nutritional disparities among sociodemographic groups. The distribution patterns of food availability provide new insight into the socioeconomic determinants of food preferences as conditioned by market forces. This report will concentrate and comment on eight principal food items and groups from the abundant information available in the DAFNE databank.
