People in the Netherlands ate an average of almost 77kg of meat last year, according to a new report from Wageningen Economic Research.
A comparison of meat consumption across Europe from 2005 to 2016 suggests that in recent years, the Dutch had been consuming a lot less but that this trend has now levelled off.
By contrast, the amounts eaten in Belgium, Germany and Europe as a whole dropped.
The Netherlands, however, still eats less meat – as measured through discarded animal carcasses – than the EU average of about 86kg per person last year. Pork was the most popular meat, followed by chicken and then beef.
