On October 11th, SIL hosted the first Ethiopia Soy Food Bazaar in Addis Ababa, in collaboration with the Ethiopian Institute of Agricultural Research (EIAR).

The Bazaar brought together soy food producers, processors, nutritionists, advocacy groups, and government officials from across Ethiopia to showcase the importance and versatility of soy in Ethiopian diets and the role of soy in fighting malnutrition. The event highlighted soy's nutritional benefits, opportunities for creating a soy food-based business, soy processing methodologies, and how soy can enhance the local Ethiopian diet.
