Less than 40 percent of the food eaten in Norway is now grown in the country, new figures from Norway's Directorate of Health and Social Affairs have revealed.
The share of Norwegian grown food is down five percent on 2012, bringing the country to its lowest self-sufficiency rate in decades. 
 
The Directorate blamed the decline on a poor harvest in 2013, which reduced Norway's domestic production of food grains.
