FEFAC Soy Sourcing Guidelines and FEMAS
The FEFAC Soy Sourcing Guidelines (SSG), which have been under review for the last 12 months, have been developed in line with one of the ambitions of FEFAC’s Feed Sustainability Charter 2030 for continuous improvement in responsible soy sourcing.
Transparency of the SSGs has been further developed and the ability for responsible sourcing standards to be benchmarked against a new criterion for conversion-free production has been introduced. The benchmarking exercise will be carried out over the course of the next few months. Once complete, users of the ITC Standards map tool will be able to compare successfully benchmarked schemes based on their requirements for zero deforestation and conversion free production.
The FEMAS Responsible Sourcing Module which is currently successfully benchmarked to SSGs v1 will be revised to ensure it continues to be successfully benchmarked to the new guidelines.
