Where Europe was divided between pork and chicken, South America is divided by beef and chicken. Most of the South American countries prefer chicken, but Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay and Venezuela prefer beef.

For Argentina and Uruguay, beef comes as no surprise. Both countries are famous for their high quality beef and their cuisine surrounding beef. Argentinians are also the 3rd biggest consumers of meat and the global number one when it comes to beef consumption. Uruguay also rank very high globally when it comes to beef consumption.

The data comes from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. The map is based on the average meat consumption per capita per year.
