French people losing appetite for baguettes

People in France are shunning baguettes in favour of healthier, cheaper options, a millers association has said.

The National Association of French Millers (ANMF) say bread consumption is on the decline, with French people eating 120 grams of bread per day in 2015 – nine grams less than in the previous year.

Overall, people in France are eating 30 grams less bread every day compared to 2003 and three times less than in 1950.
