Irish Feed and Grain Association Praises U.S. Soybean Sustainability Assurance Protocol
- General News
The Irish Feed and Grain Association (IGFA), which represents the interests of Irish feed manufacturers and suppliers, recently praised the U.S. Soybean Sustainability Assurance Protocol. In a press release featured on Ireland’s Department of Environment’s website, the group lauds the introduction of the U.S. sustainability program for soybean growers, stating that the program will incentivise farmers and the wider industry to continue to strive for innovation and will positively impact the Irish feed industry.
More and more international customers are showing an interest in the sustainability chain and are asking whether materials for feeds are being sourced in a sustainable manner. The U.S. Soybean Sustainability Assurance Protocol gives U.S. soybean farmers the opportunity to show that they are already meeting high standards for sustainable soy production and to set a precedent for international customers reviewing sustainability requirements for suppliers.
