Anyone on Foodblogsund Instagram gets impression: In meantime every second vegetarian, Pescetarier oderzumindest Flexitarians. In fact, Germans eat immerweniger meat, as this year's Fleischatlasdes federal for Environment and Nature Conservation Germany (Bund) and green-near Heinrich Böll Foundation shows. Per capita it was refore 59 kilograms in 2016, much of it was pork – almost twice as much weighing wing and beef combined. The trend towards less meat has been around since 2011, but consumption is slowly declining. For comparison: At that time it was 62.8 kilograms.
From viewpoint of environmentalists, Germans should only eat half as much meat and significantly reduce animal stocks. The presentation of report stated that re was no or way to achieve climate targets or more animal and nature protection. The motto is less and better than that, said chairman of Confederation, Hubert refusing. In doing so, he sees federal government as a duty to do everything for a sustainable conversion of animal husbandry.
Environmentalists call for obligatory meat labelling and a levy on nitrogen surpluses, as y are caused by large quantities of manure. According to your ideas, no farm should hold more than two cattle or ten pigs per hectare. In or words, pig herds would have to be reduced by several million animals – particularly affected were Western Lower Saxony and Westphalia.
The report also shows: people of Germany do not eat much less meat, but y always choose Genaueraus. More from region, more organic and also likes times fillet pieces. According to transferor, Meat Atlas must not be too fat, offal are not in demand eir. Pork belly, brain, heart? On German market, meat would be waste. In 1980s, however, Germans still ate an average of 1.5 kilograms of offal per year, now according to Meat atlas only noch100 grams.Cancer risk-we and meat meat is an important foodstuff in Germany, German sausage is a globally known cultural asset. But how much meat do we actually eat and what does it taste best for us? And did it really go without? China as an important customer
In China, pig ears are delicacies. Since DerJahrtausendwende, export of meat and dairy products to China has verdreißigfacht. Especially pig is popular: 2, 4Millionen tonnes, German traders have exported between January and Oktober2017 and thus barely one fifth of geschlachtetenSchweine. Meat and milk now account for well over half of derExporte to China, as data from European Commission and DemAgrarexportbericht 2017.
The Exportgeschäftverlief in recent years has been so good that German companies started breeding more pigs again. In November 2017 y held around 27, 5 million animals and thus about 378,000 more pigs than in May. In meantime, demand from China is apparently declining again. If trend continues, re could be a surplus of meat and thus UPA price decline. "The meat is pressing on market," says spokesman of German Farmers ' Association (DBV), Michael Lohse. At beginning of 2017 price per kilogram was 1.85 euro, currently farmers get 1.50 euros.
For many companies, export to Asia is salvation. 2015, when an important customer fell out of a trade embargo with Russia, many companies had to close. Almost ten percent of DerSauenhalter rose from business. For Lohse It is clear: "If export to China were not, a lot more companies would have to close." Their number also sank 2017 again. Gleichzeitighalten more animals – large farms continue to grow.Fewer farms, more animals
Contrary to ideals of environmentalists: you want sichviele small farms. With veggie-day, meat from petri dish and insects as neueAlternative want to achieve green initiatives that Dietraditionelle meat production goes back. The number of vegetarians has doubled in last ten years to four percent, 12 percent bezeichnensich than Flexitarians: y deliberately try to eat less meat.
While DBV is in ausländischenMärkte of meat production, environmental organisations are weared: in Germany more meat is produced than consumers could eat, y criticize. DerBUND fears higher meat production above all anda higher environmental pollution. By more slurry, which causes nitrate levels to rise and a higher CO2 emissions.
