Meat consumption on the rise in Spain

Spain has increased meat consumption by more than 16% over the first month of lockdown. Household expenditures have increased by 15.4% when comes to food and by 16.3% for meat, according to official data from the Ministry of Agriculture. In March, more than 214, 000 tonnes of meat were consumed by Spaniards in their homes compared with 184,000 tonnes reported in the same month last year.

Meats, in fact, increased their consumption above the general average for food products (15.4%), showing consumers' commitment to meat products during the state of alarm. On a negative note, the increase has not been generalized in all groups. Thus, the rise in beef (20.9%) stands out, as in fresh chicken and pork, with variations of 16.9% and 18.6% respectively. On the other hand, the sale of sheep/goat and rabbit meat declined with falls of 4.9% and 2.4% respectively.
