Dialogue for sustainability

The project, now known as the “Dialogue for Soy Improvement in Aquaculture, seeks to develop and implement a code of conduct for the supplier, ensuring that soy farmers implement safe and respectful working conditions, responsible and ecological soy cultivation and conducting a study to more accurately identify the carbon footprint of soy protein concentrate.
What was considered at each stage
Geospatial management and monitoring of soy suppliers
CJ Selecta uses a satellite monitoring system for the soy production chain. Systematically consultations and constant analyzes are carried out around the socio-environmental irregularities of the properties and rural producers that supply CJ Selecta.
This ensures that suppliers are in agreement with cj selecta's supplier policy.
