Cargill and TechnoServe are supporting the growth of a super protein – one with benefits for the environment, the aquaculture industry and indigenous farmers. Farmers in the La Araucania Region of Chile grow a type of lupine able to yield 50 percent greater protein than traditional alternatives. It’s used in aqua feed as a sustainable way to feed the growing demand for seafood.
To support customers like Mr. Yu and the industry more broadly, Cargill’s team in China has partnered with the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs (MARA), the China Rural Distance Education Network and the Smart Agriculture App by MARA. Their goal: to promote a “360-degree comprehensive solution” for ASF control and prevention.
