The TRUE-Project has largely focussed on innovations with legumes beyond the farm gate and has studied the impact their adoption might have on the supply networks. The LEGVALUE-project on the other hand has focussed on studies at farmer and regional production level and values along the supply chain. These projects are led by Frederic Muel of Terres Innovia and Pete Iannetta of the James Hutton Institute (respectively). As the projects draw their conclusions “European Legumes in Transition” conference will deliver its findings, hear from leading influencers how they believe legumes can be exploited to deliver a more sustainable and environmentally resilient agricultural system for Europe, and the opportunities that exist to realise the transitions envisaged.
