The potential of protein crops part 4: The right protein, place and market
In the final episode of the four-part series on the potential of protein crops, this week’s Tillage Edge podcast looks at how a new European project Valpro Path can help develop new supply chains for protein crops.
Professor Milena Corredig, Head of Food Design, Aarhus University, Denmark, explains how the societal shift to plant proteins is growing with consumers now looking for simple and sustainable foods which have less impact on the environment.
Dr Ewen Mullins, Head of Research, Oak Park, Carlow, discusses the project and how it aims to link growers, processors and manufacturers of food with improved protein supply chains where the value of the protein crop is increased for farmers.
