Consumers accounted for just over 321 tons of fresh meat last year, which was a decrease of 9.7% compared to the previous year and the second lowest figure since the Lanzarote Data Centre started recording the figures.

This isn’t a new trend, as the consumption of fresh meat on Lanzarote has been decreasing year on year since 2018. The island’s peak fresh meat consumption was recorded in 2008 and saw over 532 tons of fresh meat consumed.

Pork has been the most-bought meat year-on-year since 2001 and often records double that of beef, however, pork has also seen a year-on-year decrease since 2018 as 2021 recorded the second lowest kilograms of pork bought.
