Abstract

About 57 per cent of the soybeans imported by the UK for animal feed comes from Brazil. However, Brazilian soybean production is one of the drivers of the Amazon’s deforestation, which has increased significantly since 2019. Cesar Revoredo-Giha and Montse Costa-Font discuss the options for the UK to make its livestock production sustainable.
