Top 10 Meat Consuming Countries
That’s Right. World’s smallest island nation of Nauru consumes the most meat per capita. And no, these Pacific islanders don’t consume copious amounts of exotic tropical fish. Most of their meat is consumed in the form of unhealthy, processed meat, which is usually shipped in from Australia. This total dependency on processed meat has turned these previously muscularly built islanders into some of the world’s fattest. A whopping 78.5% of all adult Naurans are obese.
Rest of the graph predictably has the ranching superpowers Australia, New Zealand, Argentina and USA sitting near the top. Notable exceptions are Brazil – world’s biggest exporter of meat and Russia, world’s biggest importer. Interestingly, Portugal is the most carnivorous country in Europe and traditional pork powerhouses Germany didn’t even make it to the list.
