CRITICAL HABITATS ARE ENDANGERED BY SOY PRODUCTION WORLDWIDE
Soy is one of the main sources of protein in our global food supply. We may not realize how much of it we consume, however, because most of it is fed to livestock first.
In fact, 75% of the world’s soybean crop is used as animal feed for poultry, pigs, livestock, and farmed fish.
We can also find soy oil in margarine, chocolate, ice cream and baked goods, cosmetics and soaps. Only 5% is used for direct human consumption, in foods like tofu or soy milk.
Demand will continue to increase in the years to come, so urgent action is needed to protect people and nature. There is already enough cleared, suitable land to triple the soy production area in Brazil’s Cerrado. Solutions exist, but businesses must take a leading role in transforming the industry.
