Soybeans in Dutch milk?

Did you know that 7% of the diet of a regular Dutch dairy cow consists of soy imported from South America? Soy production is one of the main causes of deforestation in that part of the world.

It could be different. It is not necessary for cows to eat soy in order to produce milk, they could be fed locally grown crop only (as is the case in some
organically produced cheeses).  Milieudefensie (dutch part of Friends of the Earth) launched a campaign to draw attention to this topic.

Join us to watch an interesting documentary on soy production and it’s link to the cheese industry.
