To act for a healthy, hunger-free and sustainable world.
The 2016 International Year of Pulses is the single largest opportunity to increase awareness of pulses many of us will ever see. In many countries, consumer, food industry members, and governments have little knowledge of pulses, their attributes, or their ability to contribute to the solution of many food related issues facing the world today.
IYP 2016 will aim to increase awareness of pulses globally, and to increase demand, utilization, and production of pulses worldwide. Using all platforms - events, campaigns, websites and social media - we will ensure that by the end of 2016, more people know pulses, and know about them.
