In the present decade, there are two major factors that can be expected
to affect the demand for food in Ireland; the first is the country's becoming
part of the European Economic Community, the second is the
attainment of the target rate of economic growth aimed at in the official
Second Programme for Economic Expansion. When the first of these
events comes to pass, Irish consumers will be confronted by a completely
new series of retail prices for food, and how they are likely to respond to
these prices is the main question that the present paper attempts to
answer. In addition, the demand for food on the home market can be
expected to depend on the future level of (a) income, (b) population, and
the combined effects of these variables on demand is the second question
dealt with in the paper.
