In the sentence" The largest proportion of consumer spending went on food"
I don't understand why the writer used "went on"
Can you help me ?Also, could you give me some more examples of how to use go on in a similar way?

Regards

"went on" in this case means "was spent on"

You also could use "went for" there.
