Spain and Austria have the highest rate of meat consumption in Europe

Spaniards are leading the top of meat consumption in Europe with 94.04kg consumed every year. They are followed by Austrians (90.87kg) and French, who are consuming around 86.76kg, according to a UN chart.
On a global scale, the average, per capita meat consumption has increased by approximately 20kg since 1961, with the average person consuming around 43kg of meat in 2014. Nevertheless, meat consumption in North America and Europe is at nearly 80kg. Still, In Europe, countries to the east saw much lower consumption per person, compared to their western counterparts, which could be attributed to average income, says the report. Among the lowest average consumers of meat were Bosnia and Herzegovina (32.21kg), Azerbaijan (31.1kg), and the lowest Georgia (27.89kg).
Even if dietary habits are changing in some countries, such as France, the UK or Germany, Europeans are still consuming much more meat than they were a few decades ago, particularly in the west.
