Brazil has a lot of interest and great opportunities in this market. Global demand for Pulse is growing rapidly and this will be a unique opportunity in this market. With delegates from all over the world, Brazilian exporters expanded their contacts and increased our exports, reaching in 2018 some 162,000 tons.

A GPC and its members work together to:

3 – Promote access to the international market and stability of production and prices.
4 – Encourage increased quality and environmental sustainability.

All in search of interaction and evolution in the technical and marketing discussions about Beans and Pulses in Brazil and in the world.
