“In very personal terms, wherever they put a steak, to the point, that’s unbeatable.” With this statement, the President of the Government tilts the balance in favor of his Minister of Agriculture, Luis Planas, in the controversy over the intake of meat after the head of Consumption, Alberto Garzón, recommended reducing his intake. The words of the head of Consumption have caused the indignation of the agri-food industry.
“Pointing the finger at the meat sector does not seem fair to me. The data indicate that in the last ten years the consumption of meat has decreased except in 2020 due to the pandemic, ”said the Minister of Agriculture this morning after Garzón recommended that Spaniards eat less meat. “It harms health and our planet,” Garzón said in a video.
