2nd TRUE LIN Workshop in the Mediterranean region - Porto, 2019

"Realising the ecological-health approach: consumers’ transition to legume-based diets"

Tuesday, 9 July 2019 in Porto (Portugal)


The 2nd Mediterranean Legume Innovation Network (M-LIN) was jointly organized by UCP and Eurest and generated fruitful discussions around the topic of “Consumers and Sustainable Diets”. In this forum we shared experiences and results, as well as obtained valuable stakeholder input on how legumes have a crucial role in promoting more environmentally-friendly and healthy diets. Here we learned how consumers, citizens, public bodies, policy agencies, and industry are shaping the way we voluntarily or involuntarily make food choices on a daily basis.
