Every day, I start my day with the clear goal of working to transform the supply chain to become more sustainable – for farmers and the planet. Extreme weather events, rising temperatures, drought and other climate-related issues present major challenges for farmers and food producers. That’s why most farmers in Brazil not only adhere to – but are leaders – in sustainable agriculture practices. They know that preserving the planet is critical to sustaining their livelihood. It is also critical for Cargill.
At Cargill, I work with farmers to help nourish the world in a sustainable way. Our South America Soy Policy and Action Plan guide the work and our priorities. We have made significant progress the past few years on increasing traceability through our supply chain single-point mapping and are working to enhance traceability through polygon mapping. This increased visibility into our supply chain allows for better monitoring of – and taking action against – potential non-compliant land conversion.
Ultimately, it’s the engagement we have with farmers to find innovative solutions that will help us achieve Cargill’s commitment to a deforestation- and conversion-free soy supply chain in the shortest time possible.
