Meat Atlas (Der Fleischatlas) is an annual report, published by the Heinrich Böll Foundation and Friends of the Earth Europe, on the methods and impact of industrial animal agriculture and the meat industry. Barbara Unmuessig, the foundation's president, said that the report's goal is to inform consumers about the consequences of increasingly industrialized meat production.
According to the report, based on figures from the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization, the production of one kilogram (2 lb 3 oz) of beef requires 15,455 litres (4,083 US gal) of water, cheese 5,000 litres, rice 3,400 litres, and carrots 131 litres.
Over 75 kg (165 lb) of meat is consumed in the United States per person per year, 60 kg in Germany, 38 kg in China, and under 20 kg in Africa.
