The given pie-charts present information on agricultural production and consumption of various food categories such as meat, dairy, oilseeds, cereals, fruits, vegetables, tea, coffee and tobacco in Canada in the year 2014. (Introduction)

Before writing, let us structure the answer into two parts. Devote one paragraph to production and another to consumption. 

The Canadians mostly consume dairy items followed by red meat. Accounting for the 2 percent intake of eggs and poultry, and 7 percent consumption of dairy in their diet, the Canadians consume 39 percent animal products. Fruits and vegetables constitute 20 percent of the Canadian diet, while coffee and tea account for 7 percent only. (Consumption)

Of the total agricultural production in Canada, animal products account for the largest share of 53 percent. These are followed by vegetables and fruits, which account for 18 percent share. Only 11percent of total production goes to cereals while 10 percent production goes to tea, coffee, and tobacco. Oilseeds constitute only about 8 percent of the total production. (Production)
