Special grains and pulses play an evolutionary role in achieving sustainable global food production and supply. Analyzing the social and business impact of megatrends, the demands of significant population growth relative to the looming protein gap, water scarcity and efficient land usage, is vital for the future of food solutions.
In the current changing environmental and social climate across the world, it is increasingly challenging to differentiate your business from your competitors, and at the same time produce healthy, safe and ethical foods that cater for megatrends.
At Bühler Group, we are leaders in the area of research and development. We are committed to ensuring that trends are serviced economically, ethically and sustainably. Our innovations, expertise and global footprint will help your business prosper in this shifting food supply environment.
