EUActionPlanNow to Stop deforestation.

Beef, soy, palm oil, cocoa: these products are key ingredients of products consumed every day in rich countries: cocoa is turned into chocolate, palm oil is used to make snacks, cosmetics or petrol, and over 70% of world soy production feeds animals so that we can drink their milk and eat their meat.

Production of these ingredients drives massive deforestation worldwide, destroying forests in Indonesia, Cote d’Ivoire, Argentina, Brazil and many other forested countries. The expansion of plantations and farms has also led to evictions, violence, intimidation, slave labour and murder of local communities and activists.
