With the war in Ukraine a topic arose for the Non-GMO sector: The availability of Non-GMO soy, the most prominent feedstuff for producing Non-GMO milk, meat and eggs. Some are using the crisis to create a negative sentiment around a mode of production that has always been a thorn in their side. This contradicts the facts: there is, in fact, no lack of Non-GMO soy.
ENGA has asked leading soy crushing plants all over Europe this week – and surprise! - AdamPol Soya (Ukraine), ADM Straubing (Germany), BAG (Austria), Cereal Docks (Italy), Group Vandamme (Hungary) all confirmed that they have enough Non-GMO soy on their stocks. AdamPol Soya even declares: European-grown soybeans currently supply the majority of estimated European demand for non-GM soybean meal of around 4 million tonnes per annum. If you need more information how to secure your Non-GMO feed supply please contact ENGA board members Susanne Fromwald, Alexander Hissting and Emese van Maanen.
What does the Russian invasion of Ukraine mean for food supply in Europe, how does the war affect export logistics and how will it affect this year's harvest? We are happy that Volodymyr Pugachov, Quality Manager, Donau Soja Ukraine, based in Kiev, gives us some first-hand insights.
