Round Table Responsible Soy

Round Table Responsible Soy

Focused on farmers, processors and the environment, RTRS is a high quality standard for soy










Label Mouse says:

The RTRS covers the full supply chain of soy (and now some corn) production. Its an EU recognised and independently audited scheme that hold producers and processors to a high standard.

It's pretty niche this one, looking only at soy production and processing (although they now have a new arm for corn). Looks like a solid one to look out for rather than any 'responsible soy' from a brand name.

They promise:

A certification scheme including five principles and 108 mandatory and progressive compliance indicators:

* Legal Compliance and Good Business Practices

* Responsible Labor Conditions and Community Relations

* Environmental Responsibility

* Good Agricultural Practices

Ensures zero deforestation and zero conversion soy production. RTRS Certification for Responsible Soy Production is valid for 5 years with mandatory annual surveillance audits.

What is Label Mouse?

There are a lot of food labels out there, but its pretty unclear what they mean.

With the UK leaving the EU we're able to define our own regulations on how our food is produced, the impact on the environment and how the animals involved are cared for. This could be a good or a bad thing. The extra player in the mix is that brands are introducing their own schemes which can appear more eco-friendly than they actually are.

Label Mouse does the research to help you make more informed buying choices. Hope it's useful.
