Photo of the Day: Meat Consumption Declines in France

I was reading a fascinating article in The Atlantic, “France’s Troubled Romance With Beef,” which discusses the evolution of French cuisine.

One way French cuisine is apparently changing is that the country’s love affair with beef is dwindling. Generally, people are choosing to eat dishes that are healthier and better for the environment, which often translates to vegetarian dishes.

The article featured this graph, which shows just how much meat consumption is declining in France between the years 2003 – 2010.

The article also states, “[M]eat consumption is in decline not only in France but the European Union overall. La Viande’s most recent trends report shows that beef and overall meat consumption has fallen by 15 percent across France between 2003 and 2010.”
