SFAP non-conversion is positively benchmarked against the 2021 version of the FEFAC Soy Sourcing Guidelines. In addition, the standard is recognised to be a credible solution for deforestation and conversion-free soy.
FEFAC published the first version of its Sourcing Guidelines in 2015 and updated them in 2021. The new version includes stricter criteria on ecosystem protection, good agricultural practices, labour and human rights and environmental protection. SFAP passed the benchmark both in 2015 and 2021 and is recognised to be a credible soy standard with robust verification and strong assurance of the no-deforestation and no-conversion criteria.
In addition, SFAP also offers carbon footprint data for its certified farmers. This carbon footprint data is obtained with the support of Blonk Consultants and in line with all GFLI rules and procedures.
