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 we help companies understand the soy in their supply chains, whether it’s sourced directly or embedded in animal products. Our support ranges from strategic advice and setting commitments to supply chain mapping, building internal capacity for action and supplier engagement.
Proforest continues to support the CGF’s Soy Buyer’s Coalition and the Soft Commodities Programme. And in 2018, we launched the Soy Toolkit. This work is funded by the Global Environment Facility and designed to help traders, food processors and retailers understand the main initiatives available for the responsible sourcing of soy.
