The oilseeds and oils market is undergoing some serious changes. With soybean and palm oil becoming more and more dominant, the food and feed industry is becoming more dependent on these 2 crops. The war in Ukraine has been disturbing the sunflower production and export, hence less sunflower oil is available, pushing producers and consumers even more towards soybean oil and palm oil.
The rapidly growing biofuels market, especially HVO, on the other hand is challenging the oilseeds industry to grow more high oil containing crops like canola/rapeseed. The food vs fuel debate may become again a topic of concern to the food industry.
The growing interest in vegan food to replace animal protein by plant protein is creating a lot of opportunities for the oilseeds industry too as high protein meals from soybean and canola/rapeseed are ideal feedstocks to produce a wide variety of high protein concentrates and isolates.
New opportunities come with new challenges as the market and industry is under continuous pressure to make its products and processes more sustainable.
The objective of the protein and oil symposium is to highlight the opportunities and challenges the the industry is facing today and what they may expect tomorrow.
