Impact on society and Vion's role
The nature of our supply chain means Vion is linked to a potential negative impact on biodiversity. There is a risk of deforestation to produce soy for livestock feed. Via the livestock farms that supply us, we are linked to a risk of biodiversity loss through the emission of ammonia and through monoculture, soil acidification and land use and land management. In addition, transportation by us and our supply chain emit nitrogen.The other side of the picture is that by also offering organic meat, we work towards agricultural practices that help ensure sustainable food production and maintain ecosystems. With our commitment to deforestation-free soy supply chains, we work, with farmers, on halting deforestation.
