Pulses

Pulses are the edible seeds of plants in the legume family. They grow in pods and come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors.

The term ‘pulses’ is limited to crops harvested solely as dry grains, which differentiates them from other vegetable crops that are harvested while still green.

Pulses are healthy, nutritious and easy to cook with. Our product portfolio includes three popular pulses: chickpeas, mung beans and yellow peas.

The Food and Agriculture Organization recognizes 11 different types of pulses

Committed to Sustainability

In addition to our strong merchandizing capabilities, growing product portfolio and reputation for reliability and integrity, our leading position in grains and oilseeds is also connected with our commitment to responsible sourcing, traceable supply chains and sustainable business practices globally.

Supporting the farming of pulses also promotes sustainable agriculture, as pulse crops help decrease greenhouse gases, increase soil health and use less water than other crops.
