The Izvestia newspaper, citing the National Rating Agency (NRA), writes that Russians, on average, began to consume 1 kg less beef over the past five years.
Over the past five years, the share of beef on a Russian’s plate has decreased by an average of 20% to 18% by the end of 2021, in absolute terms, per capita consumption has decreased by an average of 1 kg at 9 kg per person.
Experts predict a reduction in beef consumption. This comes against the backdrop of growing consumption of pork and chicken. According to experts, this figure may soon reach 8 kg per person. Moreover, the changes are due to the high price of beef.
Prices are rising all over the world, the cost of meat production is also rising, the NRA said.
