FoodChain ID’s Deforestation-free Services comprise both due diligence of supply chains and verification of compliance.

With over 25 years of sustainability experience in the food industry, FoodChain ID is uniquely qualified to help food manufacturers and brands in regulatory compliance, as well as in the pursuit of forest land preservation and a healthy planet.

EU Regulation 2023/1115 was initiated to reduce the EU’s contribution to greenhouse gas emissions and biodiversity loss. The regulation requires any operator or trader who places the identified commodities or their derivatives on the EU market, or exports from the EU market, to prove that the products do not originate from recently deforested land or have contributed to forest degradation.
