Solidaridad has partnered with ‘the big six’ soy traders to help engage grower in Brazil’s Cerrado in order to expand and improve soy production through efficient and sustainable land use. ADM, Bunge, Cargill, COFCO Internaional, Glencore Agriculture and Louis Dreyfus Company have formed the Soft Commodities Forum. The partnership will directly engage stakeholders with farmers in the region to teach farmers how to sustainably use their land. The collaboration is concentrating on the Cerrado Biome, which covers 20 percent of Brazil and produces 50 percent of soy grown in the country. The project will start off by interviewing 80 farmers in the region to assess their needs.
