RESULTS OF TRACK #1: Sustainable Open Soy

RESULTS OF TRACK #2: Compliance

RESULTS OF TRACK #3: Living Income

Plant-based protein, such as soy, are produced and traded in enormous quantities and therefore have a major impact on the environment and economy. Soy is bought in bulk and used as feed for livestock, and also used as an ingredient for many products. That makes it difficult to track and trace. We propose a plan to make untraceable soy, traceable.

Customers are a driving force behind what the supply chain delivers. Are consumer choices influenced by a certifiable initiative designed to influence and reward sustainable consumer behaviour?

Closing the income gap for all farmers, including those with small farms and limited job opportunities, while considering deforestation
risks, requires holistic approaches, new type of partnerships and innovative financing models. This concept note will cover all these
aspects, while answering the question: “how can technology support these change processes?”.
