Slovenians are big meat lovers. Data for 2018 show that we eat much more meat (92.6 kg) than the European average (69.3 kg). Meat self-sufficiency is 80%, so meat must be imported; especially the pig meat we eat the most.

On a global scale, livestock farming is the second largest source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The IPCC therefore calls for a change in not only agricultural practices but also our eating habits.
