The 2nd Mediterranean Legume Innovation Networking (M-LIN) is jointly organized by UCP and Eurest and hopes to generate fruitful discussions revolving around the topic of “Consumers and Sustainable Diets”. In this forum we hope to share experiences and results, as well as obtain your valuable input on how legumes may have a crucial role in promoting more environmentally-friendly and healthy diets. Here we will learn how consumers, citizens, public bodies, policy agencies, and industry is shaping the way we voluntarily or involuntarily make food choices on a daily basis.
