As an agri-food company, we rely on agricultural supply chains. Yet we know that untraceable raw materials can stem from deforestation. Lactalis can be exposed, either directly or indirectly via its suppliers or partner farmers. At Lactalis, we recognize forests’ role in maintaining water and soil cycles, carbon sinks and biodiversity. Our Biodiversity and Forest Footprint Committee has mapped our highest-risk inputs and is working on policies and actions with scientific partners and NGOs.
100 % of our direct milk volumes will be assessed onsite for the volume and origin of palm oil and soy (andtheir by-products) used in animal feed by 2025 (by 2026 in Brazil).
100 % of the palm oil and by-products we buy will be mill traceable by 2051.
