Creating Sustainable Soy Business Ideas

Dear Friends,

Soybean – the little, round and shiny bean has rather been a much celebrated crop in the Indian subĀ­ continent. Apparently been used as food for centuries, Soybean could rightly be termed as a ‘Joybean’, bringing health and happiness for all. With an enriching history of taking soy business to new heights, SOPA is determined to bring more smiles and more joy to each and every person associated with this marvellous bean.

We are pleased to inform you that SOPA will be organising an International Soy Conclave on 7th and 8th October, 2017 at Brilliant Convention Centre, Scheme No. 78, Vijay Nagar, Indore. The theme of the Conclave is “Creating Sustainable Soy Business“.

Soybean is the largest grown oilseed crop in the world and also in India. It plays a major role in the Indian oilseed economy. In India, about 50 lakh farmers are engaged in soybean cultivation, producing over 11 million tons of soybean. More than 100 solvent extraction plants are engaged in soy processing and the sector accounts for an annual turnover of over ~50,000 crores (US$ 7.7 billion) which includes exports worth n5,000 crores (US$ 2.3 billion).

In a changing world, where trade dynamics keep shifting every day, it is necessary for everyone to keep updated on the production, pricing, stocks, supplies etc. at all times. Soybean crop would be ready for harvest by the first week of October and first estimates of crop would have been received by then. The timing of the Conclave, therefore, is most appropriate, to look at the crop numbers, supply and demand situation, global oilseed scenario, price outlook etc. and chart out the future course of action for the trade and industry. The Conclave would also provide an excellent opportunity for networking and developing business relations with the participants from all over the world.

A number of ministers and senior officers, both from Central and State Government as well as public sector, will address the Conclave and share their views with the participants. Over 500 delegates from India and abroad, including representatives from trade and industry, scientists, technologists, farmers and experts in commodity business, will participate in the Conclave.

Concurrently with the conclave, a buyer-seller meet will be organised on 7th October, 2017 for restricted participation by soy processors and poultry and livestock feed manufacturers. This will be a great opportunity to meet your counterparts in business at one place and conclude actual trade in soybean meal and other products.

Stall for Display of Products/Machinery:

As the Conclave will be attended by large number of users of goods and services engaged in soybean and edible oil trade, it provides a unique opportunity for exhibitors to showcase their products/services directly to the users. We are offering a limited number of exhibition stalls at the venue,as per the details attached.

We have great pleasure in inviting you to attend the International Soy Conclave and also the buyer-seller meet, to get the benefit of views from experts on production, demand, supply and price outlook as well as networking with large number of delegates.Details of the Conclave, souvenir and exhibition, along with the registration/ booking forms are attached.

We look forward to your support and participation to make the Conclave a grand success.
