Development of Adzuki beans has moved into the fast lane in a push to exploit current strong demand in Japan and other parts of Asia. Queensland Department of Primary Industries researchers have already collected market intelligence and will be developing food technologies to suit Asian palates. The target is raw bean exports of 5000 tonnes by next year.
