About This Statistic
This statistic displays the per capita consumption of meat in the Netherlands from 2005 to 2015 (in kilos). In 2005, a person in the Netherlands on average ate approximately 80 kilos of meat per year. By 2015 this had decreased by roughly five kilos, to approximately 75 kilos per person per year. In the same period, the majority of the meat expenditure was spent on charcuterie, as this statistic on the consumer spending shows. Per capita the Dutch spent approximately 80 euros on charcuterie in 2015. Together, the Dutch spent nearly 1.4 million euros on charcuterie that year, as can be seen here in this statistic on the total consumer expenditure in the Netherlands. As the per capita consumption of meat in the Netherlands between 2008 and 2015 almost continuously decreased, a further decrease in the future can be expected.
