WISHH Perspectives

U.S. Soy for Food & Feed is a Global Protein Solution

ASA’s World Initiative for Soy in Human Health program convened a dialogue in December 2023 to highlight how collaboration between U.S. farmers, and private business and public leaders can address global food security. United Soybean Board Chair Steve Reinhard joined past Chair Meagan Kaiser and WISHH ex-officio and USB Director Tony Mellenthin to discuss why U.S. Soy for both food and feed can play a key role as a protein solution for consumers worldwide.

“In my role not only as a farmer but also representing the half-million U.S. soybean growers on the national soy checkoff,” added Mellenthin, “we convened this dialogue because we know that U.S. soy is a protein powerhouse for human food as well as animal feed. It’s not only food security we’re addressing, but feed security — we need to ensure we provide our protein with protein. We soybean growers set the table and invest farmer dollars to deliver sustainable soy solutions to every life, every day while growing new markets for U.S. soy.”
