Eating Up The Amazon

Dokument - 6 april, 2006
In this report we illustrate the soya crisis through the example of two key global players: Cargill (possibly the largest private company in the world) in the Amazon and McDonald’s (the largest fast food company in the world) in Europe. We document the path taken by soya from illegally cleared farms, sometimes with the use of slave labour, to Cargill and its competitors, through the ports, processors and meat producers of Europe, and finally into the Chicken McNuggets sold under the golden arches across the continent.
