Annual consumption of meat in France 1970-2019, by kind of meat

Will poultry take over as the most consumed kind of meat in France? This is the trend that seems to be taking shape in France. While pork and beef consumption are stagnating or even decreasing, poultry consumption is increasing year after year. Indeed, in 2010, 1,520 million tons of poultry were consumed in France. Eight years later, the French consumed an additional 300,000 tons of poultry. Over the same period, beef consumption decreased from 1.64 million tons to 1.56 million tons.
As a reminder, the production of one kilogram of beef requires about 15,000 liters of water and for one kilogram of chicken, about 4,300 liters of water is needed.
