I think we haven’t spoken about countries with the highest beef consumption per person yet. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it. I love beef… I must confess. People in my country consume mainly pork and chicken, but we are also fond of beef. The images you can see below shows one of our famous national meal, goulash that is made of beef. Usually, meat consuming lifestyles are dependent on either cultures or religions. That’s why Hindus do not eat beef while Muslims abstain from pork. These then determine the availability of the meat as well. In Muslim countries like Pakistan and Saudia Arabia, it’s impossible to find pork. In certain cities of India, it is extremely difficult to find any cow meat because, in adherence to their religion, the cow is considered to be a God.
As for the world pork consumption, New Zealand leads that race. However, with the increase in health awareness and change in people’s lifestyles, people have progressed towards different diets, avoiding red meat and preferring chicken or other vegetarian and vegan alternatives. The country that eats the least meat is Bangladesh where only 4 kilograms of meat is consumed in a whole year per person on average.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three countries with the highest beef consumption per person from their list.
The first one is Kazakhstan, where beef consumption is 39% compared to other types of meat e.g., poultry, horse, and pork. Their goal is to convert the country to a prime beef exporter. The second country on our list is Paraguay. One of the leading exporters of beef, Paraguay definitely had to be on this list of countries with the highest beef consumption per person. Beef consumption in this country is said to grow quite steadily over the years as well. Beef soup is a favorite dish in the country. The third country should be Brazil has a slightly higher consumption rate in poultry than beef and veal. This is said to be because of the high prices of beef in the country. However, compared to other countries, it’s still one of the biggest consumers of beef in the world maintaining the South Americans’ love for beef.
