ADM introduces fully traceable soybean meal and oil to Europe

Published: 8-Jul-2024

The novel North American initiative will supply Europe with fully traceable and verified soybean products to meet the EU deforestation regulations being implemented in December

ADM, a natural functional ingredients specialist, has now begun offering fully verified, segregated and traceable soybean meal and oil in Europe.

This comes in just before the tightening of EU deforestation regulations, which come into effect at the end of 2024.

In March, ADM launched the re:source scheme in North America, which involved almost 5,300 farmers with more than 4.6m acres of land. 

The programme uses novel technology such as the FBN Gradable digital platform, as well a ADM’s origination and transportation capabilities to verify, trace and segregate beans from farm to destination. 

ADM also uses TRACT, an industry-led sustainability initiative that intends to enhance functional food traceability across the supply chain. 

“Thanks to the critical participation of our farmer network as well as our dedicated U.S. elevators and segregated transportation and logistics capabilities, we are in a position to supply all of our existing customers in Europe with soybean meal and oil once new rules go into effect at the end of this year,” said General Manager of EMEA Soy Crush, Sebastian Kuck.

“Although the industry continues to await final implementation guidance from the European Commission on the EU deforestation regulation’s requirements, this programme will ensure we can continue to give US farmers the choice and the opportunity to add value by supplying global markets,” said President of EMEA Oilseeds, Jon Turney.

Beyond North America, ADM continues to work across other key regions to pilot soybean crushing and exporting of both beans and meal to the EU in fully traceable and segregated supply chains.
