Join us to double global bean consumption by 2028 and put #beansonthemenu!


Targeting restaurants, caterers, cafés, schools, and other food providers, this initiative aims to get more bean dishes on menus globally, making beans a desirable food choice. 

It highlights the unique role chefs can play in showcasing the versatility and tastiness of beans while influencing dietary trends and behaviours towards affordable, healthy, plant-forward diets.
