The European salmon industry’s Brazilian soy product supply chain for feed is set to become deforestation-free. According to the Rainforest Foundation Norway, Brazilian salmon-feed supply growers CJ Selecta, Caramuru and Imcopa/Cervejaria Petrópolis say anything they produce and harvest post-August 2020 must be part of a deforestation- and conversion-free soybean supply chain. Their products supply feed to the European salmon market, which means that sector of the market is now deforestation-free.
The change is part of a growing momentum toward verifiable deforestation-free sustainable supply chains. That momentum has been driven in part by growing pressure from consumers.
The Brazilian companies are part of the first large-scale, protein-producing sector that has eliminated links to tropical deforestation throughout its supply chain. All three companies have already started providing deforestation-free products to European markets.
