Swedes are eating less meat, as rising prices mean farmers have to pay more to raise animals, according to Swedish Radio news.

During the first seven months of the year, consumption of pork and beef decreased by two percent.

The last time meat consumption fell was during the financial crisis in 2008-2009, according to Öhberg. On average, Swedes eat pork most (36 kilograms/per person/per year), followed by beef (25 kilograms), poultry (19 kilograms), and lamb and game (4.5 kilograms).
