Soy

Our stance on soy

Nutreco, through its divisions Skretting (aquaculture) and Trouw Nutrition (animal nutrition), purchases soy each year as a raw ingredient for our animal and aqua feed products. Some of this is purchased from Brazil. Whilst we have no reason to believe that soybean farmers in our supply chain hold any responsibility for the fires in the Amazon, we are actively conducting an internal review with the aim of ensuring the soy we buy in deforestation-risk geographies is conversion-free or certified deforestation free. This review may result in prioritizing soy purchases out of high-risk sectors. 

We believe that companies within our industry play an important role in ensuring raw materials are farmed in a sustainable way and we are committed to doing our part. Wherever possible, we always work with NGOs and reputable international organizations to ensure the raw materials we source are sustainable and farmed with as little impact as possible on the planet. In addition, our divisions Skretting and Trouw Nutrition have transition plans in place to meet deforestation targets by 2025 set-out by FEFAC. Supply chain diversification, development of alternative ingredients and risk minimization have been, and will continue to be, a focus for Nutreco.

Chief Strategy Officer appointed

Laurent Genet, currently Director Strategy and Development, will be appointed Chief Strategy Officer and member of the Executive Committee as from July 1. Laurent has worked for Nutreco since 2007 in a variety of senior management positions in Europe and Asia.

In his new role he will remain responsible for – amongst others – corporate strategy, business development through organic growth planning and M&A, business intelligence as well as some important activities related to open innovation, such as our alternative proteins strategy and corporate ventures. In addition, he will bring deep insights into the Asian growth market as one of our strategic priorities.

CEO Rob Koremans says, “With Laurent joining the Executive Committee, we will strengthen and elevate our oversight, momentum and direct involvement on these important topics.”
