Dropping meat? You Bet Gov!

Dropping meat? You Bet Gov!

A positive poll shows a reduction in meat consumption.

 

There has been a massive drop in meat consumption 
according to the latest (May) report by polling
organisation, YouGov. Almost a fifth of people polled
said they eat less red meat than a year ago, while 11
per cent claim to have reduced poultry. Around 13
per cent say they try to use recipes that require less
red meat and poultry and substitute it with more
vegetables and other ingredients.

There has also been a change in people’s cooking
habits, with many saying they have become more
experimental or are cooking from scratch in preference
to ready meals or dining out. The report claims that 46
per cent have cut back for financial reasons – which
leaves 54 per cent who have cut back for other reasons.
We can’t check because the report costs £2,500!
