According to the USDA, Americans spend, on average, 8.59% of their food expenditures on dairy products, which makes the United States rank seventy-third out of 114 countries in that category.

    The reduction in spending on dairy products by the American may partly be due to recession and the hate campaign directed against dairy products by some people in US. It will definitely go up in ranking from next year onwards when the economy recovers…

    I’m not sure if the ranking will go up like you suggest. The data for this post is several years old, so it doesn’t reflect the current recession. In addition, the ranking is for the amount of total food budgets that go toward dairy products, not total spending on dairy.
