    Frequency comments
    The Agricultural Programme has decided to reduce the frequency of the Apparent Consumption of Foodstuffs (ACF) series to every five years, to coincide with the Agricultural Census (AC). The Stocks of Frozen Poultry collection, therefore, will not be undertaken again until 2005/6 which is the year for the next ACF collection.

With the discontinuation of the Apparent Consumption of Foodstuffs collection, the Stocks of Frozen Poultry collection is no longer run. The final collection related to 1999/2000.

    DATA AVAILABILITY
    Yes

    Data availability comments
