What is it?

The Round Table on Responsible Soy Association (RTRS) is a non-profit organization promoting the growth of production, trade, and use of responsible soy. It works through cooperation with those in and related to, the soy value chain, from production to consumption. It does this through:

  • A global platform for multi-stakeholder dialogue on responsible soy; and,
  • The development, implementation, and verification of a global certification standard.

The RTRS includes individual geographic task forces to communicate and monitor RTRS global and local activities, initiatives, and projects. These are currently focused on Brazil. Argentina, Paraguay, and Europe.
