Soy consumption is on the rise, with the largest use coming from the animal feed industry. The main sustainability challenges in soy production are the conversion of forests and other natural ecosystems, legal compliance, and respect for communities’ land rights.
Change can only be achieved at scale if a range of actors can work together to drive progress. That’s why our support ranges from setting commitments to responsible sourcing, building internal capacity for action and engaging with suppliers, landscapes, and the soy sector.
Proforest continues to support the Consumer Goods Forum Forest Positive Coalition and the Soft Commodities Forum. And in 2018, we launched the Soy Toolkit, a capacity building programme, designed to help traders, food processors and retailers understand how to make progress and deliver on responsible sourcing of soy.
