ITV News published this video item, entitled “Cadbury chocolate among UK dairy products linked to deforestation in Brazil | ITV News” – below is their description.
Cadbury’s chocolate, Cathedral City cheddar, Anchor butter, Country Life butter, Clover dairy spread, Davidstow cheddar, Arla’s Cravendale milk, and Asda’s Farmers Milk – all proudly wear their British farm credentials, and we consume them in vast quantities.
But an investigation by ITV News, The Bureau of Investigative Journalism and Greenpeace Unearthed has linked them to the destruction of vast tracts of Brazilian forest through soya – a protein-rich cattle feed supplement.
We can reveal that soybeans from deforested land are being mixed in with certified beans and ultimately fed to dairy cattle in the UK.
Their milk often ends up in the dairy products we know and love.ITV News YouTube Channel
