If everybody living in Andorra spent the same amount on net meat imports, they would each spend US$405 annually. Whilst this is the highest per person spending in the world, Andorra has a relatively small population. It is Japan that brings in the highest absolute total net meat imports, accounting for a quarter of the world total.

Japan (the only territory that is an entire region) has the highest regional imports, of the five regions that do have net meat imports. Northern Africa has the lowest. When comparing net regional totals Japan accounts for half of net meat imports by value.

"Throughout history, the ubiquitous chicken has maintained an important and constant presence in many cultures worldwide." Kay Chin, 2001

Territory size shows the proportion of worldwide net imports of meat (in US$) that are received there. Net imports are imports minus exports. When exports are larger than imports the territory is not shown.
