Pay attention to this article, since it will bring you to the list of the countries that eat the least meat in the world. It is a very interesting topic and now Insider Monkey has published an article about it. I must confess that I really like meat. Almost every kind of meat, and as I do farming, I have chickens, ducks, geese at home, so I often eat meat. What is sure, people in my country consume lots of meat, especially chicken, turkey, pig and beef.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the countries that eat the least meat in the world.
The first country is Pakistan. It seems that Pakistan definitely deserves to be among countries that eat the least meat in the world, since sheep meat consumption is 4.63 pounds per capita, beef and veal 14.1 pounds per capita, poultry meat 9.92 and pork meat is 0.0 pounds per capita. Since Pakistan is Islamic country, it is expected that pork meat intake is low/non-existent. While eating pork is not forbidden, importing or products that contain pork (fat) is. In other words, if you are a pork lover, you will have to search for it somewhere across the Pakistani border. The second one is Indonesia. Indonesia’s poultry sector has grown significantly since the 1980s. It is primarily made up of chicken and broiler farms but it also contains duck broilers and quails. This country does not import or export chicken meat and protein intake is mostly based on poultry. This explains the higher poultry consumption of 15.9 pounds per capita. In Indonesia beef and veal consumption is 4.85 pounds per capita, pork meat consumption is 5.1 pounds per capita, and sheep meat consumption is 0.88 per capita. The last country on our list now is Nigeria. In Nigeria beef and veal consumption is 3.75 pounds per capita, pork meat consumption 2.43 pounds per capita, poultry 1.98 per capita and sheep meat consumption is 5.07 per capita. GDP in Nigeria is growing steadily which supports the rise of a middle class as well. This means that more people will be able to afford meat, especially beef, which is confirmed by an increased demand for beef.
