Garbanzo - Increased Consumption, Lesser Increase in Production

The chickpea consumption globally is growing, from traditional consumption in Spain, Italy and Portugal, to trendy plant-based consumption in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany and France. Even in countries where it has already made its footprint such as Asia, South America, Africa and the Middle East, more and more consumers are valuing this healthy pulse. Chickpeas (Cicer arietinum L.) are a pulse crop that belongs to leguminosae family. The most common varieties are the desi and kabuli chick peas. Our focus at Sephina Foods is that of the Kabuli, the larger, beige-coloured chickpea, also known as Garbanzo bean. Chickpeas are a very versatile, healthy product and easy to cook. After being traded as a dry product, chickpeas can be transformed into a canned product or a flour. The global chickpea consumption is increasing fast. The import of chickpeas has seen strong growth, between 2015 to 2019, imports increased in all of Europe by 55%, which is exceptional for a pulse crop. At the same time, production is increasing but at a much lesser rate. As an importer, trader, end-user… how do you guarantee access to the worlds highest valued chickpea while demand sky-rockets? The best way to do so, is to contact a trusted and reliable supplier straight from the source that has experience in executing all steps along the supply chain, from the farmer all the way up until the consumer. That is what Sephina Foods strives to offer; a healthy, long-lasting relationship with all its partners around the world in order to help better create a unified market.
