The world demand for soybeans has increased dramatically in the last decade and is expected to keep growing. Why? The world population is increasing and many countries are also experiencing economic growth. History shows that as people become wealthier, they will demand more meat protein, thereby increasing feed demand. The soybean oil market is also expected to grow due to its popularity in cooking.
The Ohio Soybean Council invests in market research, customer outreach and promotion projects independently and through partners such as the USA Poultry & Egg Export Council, U.S. Soybean Export Council and U.S. Meat Export Federation in an effort to take advantage of this opportunity.
