From french input-output matrix, we calculated that in 2010, for € 100 of food domestic consumption:
- the necessary agricultural production represents € 17.6,
- the value created in the post-farm activities - trade, transport and industries -, approaches € 60,
- the value of the imported food is € 13.4,
- and the amount of the taxes is about € 9.
The decomposition of the two first aggregates above (agriculture, post-farm value) shows that food expense of €°100 generates:
- value added, for € 63.5, distributed in all the industry groups of the economy, of which € 8.3 in agriculture (increasing after 2009, due to the amelioration of agricultural prices), € 13.6 in food processing industry, €°15.5 in services and € 20.4 in trade,
- importations of intermediate consumption, for € 14.1 (increasing since 1999)
- imported food (€ 13.4) and taxes (€ 9), already mentioned.
In 2010 always, the gross operating surplus of the agriculture is resulting from the following demands:
- the domestic demand for food in the retail trade, expressed to agriculture and food processing industry, for 36 p.c.,
- the demand expressed to the hotels and restaurants, for 5 p.c.,
- the other domestic demands (in which, agricultural commodities used in the non-food industries), for 9 p.c.,
- the exportations of agricultural products and food, for 26 p.c.,
- and from the direct subsidies, for 29 p.c.
