In 2017 Pulse Canada established a target of creating new demand in new use categories for 25% of the industry’s productive capacity by the year 2025. To achieve “25 by 25”, Pulse Canada focuses resources on two areas of activity:

1. Creating efficiencies within the transportation and marketing of pulses by eliminating barriers to trade and ensuring the industry has the transportation capacity and service it needs.

2. Creating sustainable demand for Canadian pulses by marketing the health, nutrition and environmental benefits of pulses to end users; accelerating research that removes barriers and creates incentives for pulse consumption; and collaborating with key private and public sector stakeholders to create food systems that prioritize health and sustainability.
