Abstract: In the late 1990s, the author conducted research entitled “Modeling the demand and supply structure for food in Asia”.

In this paper, the author introduces an overall research structure and compares previous study results with the latest statistical data provided by the Food and Agricultural Organization, United Nations (FAO).
