The American Soybean Association’s World Initiative for Soy in Human Health (ASA/WISHH) program recently participated at the three-day Kisan Mela Conference and Exhibition in Lahore, Pakistan as part of the USDA-funded FEEDing Pakistan project.
More than 3,000 people visited the ASA/WISHH booth where they learned about the value of soy-based feed in aquaculture. More than 200 people requested further information about aquaculture and ways they may become involved in the industry in Pakistan. Oryza, the ASA/WISHH private sector supply chain partner of soy-based fish feed, spent all day at the booth meeting with previously identified future customers.
