Picking B.
Even though its per capita food supply has hardly increased in two decades, stringent rationing and planned distribution have allowed the Peopleâ€™s Republic of China to ensure nutritional levels of 2,000 calories per person per day for its population.
'Even though' sounds more appropriate to give stress on something.

After a careful look I change my answer to B. We need ||ism.

(A) Even though its per capita food supply hardly increased during
(B) Even though its per capita food supply has hardly increased in
(C) Despite its per capita food supply hardly increasing over
(D) Despite there being hardly any increase in its per capita food supply during
(E) Although there is hardly any increase in per capita food supply for

go for B.

(A) In 'increased during two decades', two decades are vague. Which decades?
(B) Good
(C) Despite food supply (X) ==> Despite little increase
(D) Awkward
(E) is (X) tense is wrong

It cant be E as the modifier needs to come after the comma or else the subject needs to come before the comma which is not satisfied.
Among A,B,C and D choose B as it should be hardly increased in two decades.
