We are so pleased to present the Beans is How 2023 Annual Report, a celebration of the achievements, collaborations and efforts to double global bean consumption since our launch in November 2022.

“From a spark of inspiration at the UN Food Systems Summit in 2021, to now, one year after our official launch, we’ve ignited a bean-powered global movement,” said Paul Newnham, Executive Director & Chief Bean Officer of the SDG2 Advocacy Hub. “Over 91 organisations from diverse backgrounds have committed to recognising and promoting the power of beans to solve some of the world’s most urgent problems; hunger, malnutrition, climate change and more. This first annual report is a testament to the collective effort, dedication and energy of our many partners and supporters.”
