Traceability as a source of solution for zero deforestation
We achieved polygon-level traceability of all direct suppliers in the 61 priority municipalities, as well as for grains across Brazil. This will allow us to understand risks and opportunities in our supply chain, including deforestation/conversion issues, helping Cargill move closer to its zero-deforestation commitment.
Traceability also directly benefits the information leading to transparency for our downstream customers, bringing security not only to the company, but to all stakeholders involved.
In total, about 1000 municipalities in 15 Brazilian states were analyzed, with the involvement of about 300 people directly or indirectly in the supply chain mapping process.
We faced challenges such as the lack of technology that would allow us to connect the land data with the fiscal data, i.e., there is no ready-made data source for the analyses, but we have the entire company dedicated to build the State of Art traceability in the commodity sector in Brazil today.
