Czech Republic reports poultry consumption up 13-fold since 1948

Numbers reached 24.8 kilograms per person in 2009

Chicken meat consumption in the Czech Republic has grown to 13 times the 1948 numbers, from roughly 2 kilograms to 24.8 kilograms in 2009, according to the Czech Statistical Office.

This number beats out the country's beef consumption, which has declined, and pork production, which has stagnated in recent years. Overall, Czechs consumed 78.8 kilograms of meat per person on average in 2009. Consumption was at its highest for the country in 1989, when numbers reached an average of 97 kilograms per person.
