I think your way is good, but I would make a small change.

The table shows a comparison of five countries, namely, Italy, Sweden, Spain, Turkey, and Irland, regarding to their consumption on of different items.

You could also write: "The table shows a comparison" while they say in question that the table gives information.

ONE OTHER THING:
I don't really like the word "namely." It is better to use a colon.
The table shows a comparison of five countries: Italy, Sweden, Spain, Turkey, and Irland. They are compared based on consumption of various items.
