Dietary recommendations suggest that the average American needs to double their consumption of fruit. According to the USDA's proposals for the 2007 Farm Bill, the US Federal Government will boost its purchases of fruit as part of school lunches and other food programs. Coupled with increased awareness of nutritional values among consumers, these trends are expected to lead to an increase in per capita consumption of fruit.
