The Soy Network Switzerland supports the cultivation and marketing of responsibly produced forage soy. Responsible means: Old-growth forests and important ecosystems are protected, land use rights are respected and GMO-free soy production is increased more>>
97 percent of the forage soy sourced through the network stems from responsible production. In 2021, imports of responsibly produced soy accounted for at least 96 percent of the overall Swiss market. 79 percent of imported soy comes from European cultivation.
Voluntary solutions by market participants are better than interventions and guidelines from the federal government. The soya network should encourage people to implement similar solutions in other markets.
