First off, to be clear, fish and seafood are not counted as meat.
The biggest consumer of meat per capita in North America is the United States, where people consume an average of 123 kg of meat per capita per year, the second highest globally. Saint Vincent and the Grenadines comes in second, with 96 kg of meat. Saint Lucia is third, with 93 kg.
The lowest meat consumption can be found in Haiti (18 kg) and Nicaragua (28 kg).
