U.S. Soy: Meeting the Current and Future Needs of Indonesian Buyers

Indonesians eat a lot of tempeh, but with their rising prosperity, they’ll likely be introducing more meat into their diets in the future. This populous market already buys U.S. Soy for human consumption, but Sharon Covert, Illinois soybean farmer, says it’s important to also convey to Indonesian buyers that U.S. Soy is a great source of protein and amino acids. This communication is key to servicing this market now and well into the future as their applications for U.S. Soy evolve.
