What is behind the "responsible" soy label? Detective Pig finds out

Mar 31, 2011

In collaboration with environmental and social rights organisations, including Rainforest Rescue, Monkeybizniz launches an animation which shows Detective Pig investigate the realities of soy labelled 'responsible'. The soy industry is not what it seems. Deforestation and toxic chemicals are being used in South America to grow soy so European cattle can be fed.

Environmental and social organisations all over Europe are writing to supermarkets and food industry, asking them not to mislead their consumers. We strongly oppose the attempted greenwash of industrial soy monocultures by companies that have a stong economic interest in the expansion of the soy industry, such as BP, Monsanto and Unilever. Now they are tryong to sell their GMO soy as 'responsible' to supermarkets.

We want to reduce European dependence on imported soy and to come to radical changes in the way food is produced. Please help us and tell the supermarkets that we don't accept this fraudulent label. Please read more and sign here the petition.

Please, help us distributing this information widely. Thank you very much.
