Mostly, the conference was focused at the discussions on producing and consuming the pulses in the world, on food processing and refined foods, the tendencies that are influenced by the changes in people’s eating and demand for plant protein as meat alternative.
The conference “The Future of Pulses” has become a multi dimension platform for communication of the agricultural business sector community, scientists, analytics, the officials of State bodies and other institutes. New millennium requires new – healthy and useful – foods for people’s nutrition. The pulse market is the market of new opportunities.
Ukraine is proved to emerge as a major powerhouse in the world pulse trade and the one of the leaders of pulse export, primarily exporting pea. The future growth of pulse production and its export in Ukraine is due to growing consumers’ markets in Asia, Middle East, Africa and the EU.
See you all at the pulse conference in Kyiv in 2020!
