    Our stance on soy

    Nutreco, through its divisions Skretting (aquaculture) and Trouw Nutrition (animal nutrition), purchases soy each year as a raw ingredient for our animal and aqua feed products. Some of this is purchased from Brazil. Whilst we have no reason to believe that soybean farmers in our supply chain hold any responsibility for the fires in the Amazon, we are actively conducting an internal review with the aim of ensuring the soy we buy in deforestation-risk geographies is conversion-free or certified deforestation free. This review may result in prioritizing soy purchases out of high-risk sectors. 

    We believe that companies within our industry play an important role in ensuring raw materials are farmed in a sustainable way and we are committed to doing our part. Wherever possible, we always work with NGOs and reputable international organizations to ensure the raw materials we source are sustainable and farmed with as little impact as possible on the planet. In addition, our divisions Skretting and Trouw Nutrition have transition plans in place to meet deforestation targets by 2025 set-out by FEFAC. Supply chain diversification, development of alternative ingredients and risk minimization have been, and will continue to be, a focus for Nutreco.

    How we make a difference

    We are uniquely positioned to contribute towards the development of more sustainable livestock production and aquaculture.

    Serve the animal and our customers best.

    We translate world-class research and innovation into practical, sustainable nutritional solutions.
