Brazil is one of the global leaders in food production and exporting.
Expanding local agricultural production in a sustainable way to meet the needs of a world population in constant growth is a great responsibility, but not the only one as, at the same time, we must consider other important matters regarding governance, social and environmental issues in place.
Viterra has a commitment to originate products that are free from any socio-environmental restrictions, in addition to complying with all legislation and relevant industry pacts.
Given the growing global demand for products from sustainable origins, supporting our supply chains to be compliant with social and environmental legislation has become essential for us. Also important is incentivising producers through strategic mechanisms to achieve better productivity by using technological resources and improving processes for good agricultural practices. This will increase their productive efficiency through the sustainable use of areas that have already been converted, and eliminates the drive for new deforestation.
To achieve this, our field teams are developing collaborative solutions to ensure our grain supply chains will be 100% traceable, monitored and free from deforestation or native vegetation conversion.
We understand that our role increasingly goes beyond product marketing. Today we are the main connection between consumers, who are more and more concerned about the origin of the products they use, and the producers who work responsibly assuring the preservation of the environment, while helping to ensure food security for the growing world’s population.
Both the preservation of Brazilian forests and the sustainable use of the soil, especially in the most sensitive biomes, is a responsibility assumed by all people who are part of Viterra, not only as professionals, but also as the global citizens we all are.
