There was a lot of interest in our story about how Nestlé had stopped buying Cargill’s Brazilian soy because of concerns over deforestation, originally reported in the Wall Street Journal.
We asked the world's largest food and beverage company to comment.
A Nestlé spokesperson told us: “We stopped sourcing soy from Brazil from Cargill in May 2019. This was because of its inability to deliver traceable soy and because of recent changes in its policy regarding deforestation in Brazil."
He said that, over the past 10 years, Nestlé has been leading the way in its efforts to end deforestation across its supply chain.
