Reasons for Certifying

Soy is essential for the food industry as it is one of the most important sources of protein and vegetable oil. Being part of this value chain involves great responsibility towards sustainability and this certification supports our commitment to this idea.

RTRS Experience

To achieve the standard, Nidera had to use communication channels with communities near the fields, offer fair job opportunities to local inhabitants –giving them priority as potential suppliers – and train contractors, therefore minimizing negative social and environmental impacts on production.

Benefits of the RTRS Certification

  • It opens the door to new opportunities and boosts competitiveness in increasingly demanding markets.
  • It reduces the risk margin in relation to environmental and legal conformities.
  • It fosters relationships with our stakeholders, such as contractors and communities close to our fields.
  • It represents a new occasion for assessment, where value is created by sharing our achievements and learning.

Other Relevant Information
