In Argentina, the National Post Office is launching a series of stamps to support the International Year of Pulses. There will be four different stamps with different types of beans including: the common bean, peas, lentils and garbanzo. The hope is that this will sensitize the public about the nutritional benefits of pulses as part of a sustainable food production aimed at achieving food and nutrition security. One of the main challenges that the supply chain faces is developing a domestic market in Argentina. Domestic consumption is very low which generates a dependency on the international market. The hope is that these stamps will help boost production benefiting the national economy and the health of the country.
