These are the most turkey consuming countries


Now granted this list is from 5 yrs ago. I am surprised to see Tunisia on the list. I am told the Turkey bird got its name because the Ottoman Empire was the largest importer of the bird, and the Ottoman Empire once ruled over much of ME. But whenever I watch those food vloggers on YT go to various Mediterranean islamic nations, turkey is never showcased.

There are also Euro countries on the list as well. France, Hungary, Germany, Ireland, and even Austria on the list. Hungary apparently consumes 19lbs/yr for every person. That is like more than a lb/month. So like perhaps twice everyone month they eat a turkey meal. I never seen it showcased on YT vlogs. Both France and Portugal consumer more than 10lbs/yr/person too. I never seen Turkey on a french menu. Is it mostly just a deli sandwich meat then?

Per capita .. consumption … this is skewed because some countries each lots of pork and beef and some countries don’t ( as an overall % of meat consumption)

300 million turkeys are consumed in the us each year
45 million for thanksgiving

This isn’t counting wild turkeys harvested from hunting seasons

Ground turkey. Has become popular
Deli sliced turkey breast is probably the most popular
I sell thousands of pounds of turkey parts too

In my country, we definitely don't like turkey. Prefer duck or goose.

We never see turkey here except around Christmas and they are very expensive.

Not commonly eaten I guess, but everyone seems to have chickens in their yards. And they don't cross the road!

My grandparents raised turkeys in the back yard. It was their Christmas money.
