The meat-eating habits of the Irish nation has changed considerably.
How can your menu adapt to this?
According to a recent survey by the World Health Organisation, we eat:
- 26kg of chicken per capita per annum.
In comparison with….
- Just 16kg of beef per year.
In summary, we are eating less spuds and less beef but more poultry and pork.
People are becoming more health conscious, opting for leaner meats with less saturated fats and calories.
Consumer trends are continuously changing but it is evident that we are becoming a poultry eating nation.
This week alone, three million chickens will be killed to satisfy Irish appetites!
It is likely that we will see more chicken options in stores and featured on menus to give consumers more options.
