No Cries for Beef in Argentina

Argentina, a country known for its affinity for beef, may be trading its once beloved steaks for tofu. A new article discusses Argentina’s struggling beef market and highlights how Argentinians are starting to rethink their eating habits.
Since its peak in 1958, annual per capita meat consumption in Argentina has dramatically fallen from 100 kilos to nearly half that at 60 kilos. A growing interest in health nationwide is credited for Argentina’s blooming vegetarian population. Additionally, government price controls, which make it less profitable to raise cattle, also play a role in reduced beef production. According to Ernesto Ambrosetti from the Argentine Rural Society, “In Argentina, more than 130 slaughterhouses have disappeared in the last ten years.”
The United States, another nation known for large-scale beef production, is also seeing a reduction in meat consumption. From Meatless Mondays to going vegan, meat’s popularity with Americans has undoubtedly waned.
Whether you’re concerned with improving your health, safeguarding the environment or taking a stand against animal suffering, adopting a healthy and humane vegan diet is easy and delicious. For more information, visit ChooseVeg.com.
