Pulse industry optimistic about long term prospects

Arriving back from the Pulses 2017 event in Vancouver, Canada, Mr Storey said those in attendance, involved in the industry right across the globe, felt there had been a quantum shift in pulse supply and demand patterns.

“In the long term, up to 2025 and beyond, the outlook is very positive,” Mr Storey said.

“It is a consumer story and about changing behaviours, there is a transformation taking place in the way we think about food and a new focus on health, nutrition, affordability, sustainability, provenance and environment,” he said.
