FrieslandCampina achieves good score for WWF Soy Scorecard

   

FrieslandCampina scored well above average with a score of 20 out of 24 points in the latest WWF Soy Scorecard which covers nine European countries and 133 companies.

 

The company aims at purchasing agricultural basic materials from fully sustainably managed sources by 2020. With cooperation from the animal food industry and member dairy farmers, 100% of soy in feed concentrates for FrieslandCampina's cows is sustainable as of 2015 onwards.

 

All purchased soy must be certified in conformity with the Round Table Responsible Soy (RTRS) or similar criteria. Farmers may only buy concentrates from cattle feed suppliers that comply with the GMP+ module and are therefore on the so-called white list. This ensures compliance of all soy in the feed of cows with the RTRS criteria.
