The French are reluctant to give up meat

If you need additional proof of the French’s association with meat, here’s it. According to a study conducted by Yougov in 26 countries last April, only a quarter of French people (25%) consider a meat-free diet to be healthier. Globally, nearly 4 in 10 people (39%) agree, which is a much higher percentage. In detail, there are many differences depending on the geographical area.

Some Asian countries are more convinced (57% in India, 47% in the Philippines, 44% in Indonesia and Vietnam for example), China and the United States respectively show 37% and 33% positive responses. The study also indicates that the percentage of respondents (neither agree nor disagree) is lowest in Germany (13%), while nearly half of the respondents are in China (46%) and Hong Kong (44%).

In Europe, this statement is supported by 38% of Germans, 30% of Portuguese, 29% of Italians, and 28% of Spaniards, British and Greeks. Only two countries – Hungary with 18% and Japan with 14% – show an even more unfavorable opinion than France. Should we view this as a sign of a pure and simple rejection of a meat-free diet? Away from this. At the same time, more than one in two Germans (53%) plan to reduce their consumption of meat and dairy products. The same is true for 44% of the Portuguese and 37% of the French.
