Assessment of the Scope for the Development of Vegetable Protein Production in the EU

01-03-2003

The study reviews the sources and production of vegetable protein needed for animal feeding in the EU and highlights the fact that the EU imports a high proportion of its vegetable protein requirements in the form of oilseeds, particularly soya. This deficit in EU production has increased following the ban on the use of meat and bonemeal in animal feeding.
