Switzerland's meat is among the most expensive in the world.


It costs 124% more than the average European price. A half-kilogram of beef costs around CHF 12-14. A 200-gram Kentucky rump steak costs CHF 37.50 ($38) in a Swiss restaurant near Zurich airport, while a bigger 250-gram Argentinian rump steak costs €20.90 (CHF22.90 or $23) in a steakhouse close over the German border in Singen. That is double the price in Switzerland, gram for gram. High Swiss tariffs on food and drink imports are intended to safeguard local farmers, who often have smaller farms than foreign rivals, as well as the hefty prices of Switzerland's 'high price island.'
