The Legume Innovation Network

The Legume Innovation Network

The LIN is intended as a complimentary platform to bring unity to the somewhat fragmented legume sector stakeholders.

It aims to retain an enduring focus on innovation and issues spanning the legume supply networks and should ensure a wide membership base that embraces all aspects of:

  • input and production, commodity processing and food technologies;
  • trading markets, retailing plus new and emerging markets;
  • cultural aspect including ‘sustainable consumption and environmental impacts;
  • socio-economics, governance and policy development.

Whilst LIN is borne out of formalised projects,  it was always the view that it should be co-owned by others in 2021, thereafter continuing to evolve to meet the needs of those within the network.

We are seeking your commitment to the continuation of the LIN. This commitment is seen as a declaration of intent to ensuring the continuation of the LIN with the overall aim of increasing the crop area of pulses in Europe and increasing the level of protein crop self-sufficiency.
