Per capita consumption of beef and veal in Germany 1991-2019

German per capita beef and veal consumption levels have fluctuated somewhat in the last decade, amounting to 10 kilograms in 2019. However, compared to the 1990s, these levels were noticeably lower.

Pork most consumed type of meat

When looking at per capita consumption of meat products in Germany by type, pork is the most consumed at 35.7 kilograms in 2018, followed by poultry and then beef. In the country that is also known for its many sausage products, recorded pork consumption levels are explainable. Lower meat consumption levels in general may also be due to growing pursuit of vegetarian or vegan lifestyles, as well as rising awareness and criticism of the meat processing industry in general.

Biggest beef producer?

In accordance with recorded consumption levels, pork continues to be the most produced type of meat in Germany, followed by poultry and then beef. Germany did not, however, make the list of the biggest beef producers in the world.
