Spanish perspective on meat consumption and consumer attitudes
This paper analyses meat consumption and consumer attitudes towards meat and meat analogues in Spain, as well as the barriers and motives that could modify meat consumption in the future. Probably, the trend observed in the decline in meat consumption before the pandemic, which stabilized during the pandemic, will be observed again, with health, animal welfare and environmental issues being the main concerns and reasons for the reduction of consumption. The main drivers of meat consumption are the hedonic component, its nutritional characteristics, and its perception as a healthy and indispensable in a balanced diet. Meat analogues can be found in most Spanish supermarkets, some of them produced by large meat industries. Finally, authors highlight the need to provide Spanish consumers with reliable and credible information that will enable them to be aware of the efforts made by the different production players in the meat sector to achieve a more sustainable product and guarantee animal welfare.
