Chicken is 222% more expensive in this country than the average price resulted from the survey. Next are lamb (+174%), beef (+149%), pork (+115%) and fish (+49%).

The leaders are Australians that are eating 112 kilograms of meat per year while the lowest rate of meat consumption is reported in India (4 kg/year).
