ARGENTINA : Pizzas Overtaking Steaks...As Meal Of Choice In B.A.


    Inch thick, cheese-laden pizzas are challenging Argentina's legendary steaks...as the meal choice in B.A.
    Pizza restaurants are spreading fast...in a nation that leads the world in annual per capita beef consumption...55.7kg/128lbs.
    One big reason is cost.
     Farmers blame beef's recent increased costs there...due to new export restrictions...and a switch to more profitable soybeans.
