Rabbit Meat Sales in Hungary on the Rise
Sales of rabbit meat at big supermarket chains in Hungary have risen sharply since the Agriculture Ministry launched its first campaign to promote the consumption of the food in 2017, the head of the Rabbit Products Council said at the Farmer Expo international agriculture fair in Debrecen (195 km east of Budapest) on Thursday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Róbert Jurasko said sales of rabbit meat in big supermarket chains rose from 250 tonnes in 2018 to 700 tonnes last year. This year, sales already stand at 800 tonnes, he added.
Rabbit meat has a protein content of more than 17% and contains no allergens, making it suitable even for baby food and "a perfect fit" for the modern diet, he said.
