In first place would like to make sure that everyone reading further down does understands what it is about. Yes I breed rabbits for meat. And yes their meat is delicious as well as nutritious. And yes off course there is a difference between pet rabbit and meat rabbit  similar to gold fish and salmon,or parrot and chicken whichever you prefer better.  Several different breeds of Rabbits have been developed for meat production, with the New Zealand White and the Californian being the most commonly produced, because of their fine meat.You still can keep them as pets if you like ,but the main reason they been breed for is food. If by any chance you feel you don`t like the idea please don`t continue reading and don`t feel offended as it is your personal choice as well as others.
