The Economics Of Our Growing Appetite For Protein
For Argentina, and other Latin American countries, this is a golden opportunity.
The world is hungry for proteins. For those of us monitoring the economy in Argentina, which is a leading producer of grains and soy, it is clear that this is a huge opportunity.
Some Argentine producers are already looking toward the future. The food firm Molinos, for example, is considering building a protein plant to make concentrated soy protein, which is potentially of great use in fish farming.
Concentrated soy protein can contribute to a balanced diet for fish and even halve the cost of their feed. Producing it would not just boost the profits of soy producers but create a new, elaborated and higher value-added item to their production chain.
