French household spending declined sharply in July, data released by the statistical office Insee showed on Tuesday.

Household consumption declined 2.2 percent on month in July, after a 0.3 percent increase in June. In May, household consumption grew 10.5 percent.

The decrease was mainly driven by a 2.7 percent fall in manufactured goods sales and a 2.9 percent drop in food consumption.

Meanwhile, energy expenditure rose 1.0 percent.

The statistical office said household consumption expenditure on goods remained unchanged in July, the agency said.
