Between 2006 and 2016, Belgians have reduced their meat consumption by 1.1 kg on average. Overall, the average meat consumption has decreased by 18 % between 2006 and 2016. Sheepmeat and goatmeat (-43 %) as well as horsemeat (-39 %) have registered the sharpest decreases. However, these two categories only represent 2 % of the total human consumption of meat. Consumption of beef and veal has also fallen, from 13.3 to 9.9 kg, that is a decrease of more than a quarter (-26 %). The least significant relative decrease concerns the type of meat with the highest consumption in Belgium: pigmeat. Its consumption went from 24.0 to 22.5 kg between 2006 and 2016 (-6 %). It should be noted that we eat more poultry meat and game meat than ten years ago. Their consumption went from 3.05 to 3.16 kg (+4 %).
