Soy is a globally traded commodity that serves as a key source of protein, vegetable oils, and biodiesel. Soybean meal is the largest source of animal feed in the world. Around the world, there is surging demand for soy which has contributed to the doubling of soybean production in the last 20 years.

Expansion of soy production is a major driver of forest loss. Every year around 480,000 hectares are deforested for soy in major soy-producing tropical countries. Large soybean fields, particularly in Latin America, are often planted on newly deforested land—or they may expand onto former pastureland, pushing cattle to the forest frontier.
