A story about how research is showing huge savings in CO2 emissions using regional soy in European pig feed also performed well last month.
The use of Donau Soja-certified feed sees an elimination of around 40% of CO2-emissions caused by pork meat production, found a study carried by the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (FiBL) in Austria. The research was commissioned by Donau Soja, a non-profit, independent and member-based organization located in Vienna that seeks the sustainable production of soy in Europe and the development of regional value chains.
