Sustainable Soy

Collaborating to end deforestation and improve sustainability across soy supply chains

Cargill has been working to end deforestation related to soy production for more than 20 years. We promote sustainable practices to meet the world’s growing demand for soy in food, animal feed and biofuels driven by increasing nutritional needs, changing dietary habits and desire for fossil-fuel alternatives.

As a leading purchaser, processor and transporter of soybeans in major supply chains around the world, Cargill is committed to sustainable soy production, including protection of native vegetation, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and promotion of responsible working conditions. Cargill’s role in the soy supply chain comes with significant responsibility, and we are keenly aware of the need to deliver customer solutions in a safe, responsible and sustainable way.
