I’m sure this won’t come as a surprise to most of you but New Zealand is right up there with the best of them when it comes to meat consumption per capita.
The good folk at GOOD have make an attractive wall chart that illustrates this in relation to common food stuffs. According to them, and the World Resources Institute from whence they grabbed their data Godzone is rated second in the world (313.3 lbs per person) behind Denmark (321.7 lbs) and ahead of Luxembourg (312.4 lbs).
I have no idea whether these stats are accurate – I’m sure I read not that long ago that Argentina ate more meat per capita and that figure stood at aroud 635 lbs per capita.
