SUPPORTING SUSTAINABLE SOY

For every ton of sustainable soybean oil purchased from Olenex, customers indirectly also support the “ADM Doing it Right” program, which helps Brazilian growers improve their performance in socially and environmentally responsible ways. “Doing It Right” offers growers agronomic and operational best practices and provides them with a sustainable agriculture action plan to promote continuous improvement. The whole program is executed in co-operation with Aliança da Terra (AT), a Brazilian NGO created by local farmers. Farmers successfully going through the “Doing it Right” program can qualify for certification under the ADM Responsible Soybean Standard – learn more about it here.
