To date, over 270 companies, research facilities and associations have joined us. These include, for example, Rewe, Hofer/Aldi Süd, Edeka, Bio Austria and Greenpeace. 22 agriculture ministers from the EU and neighbouring countries have declared in writing that they wish to promote soya cultivation in Europe, and are keen to back the Donau Soja initiative. We are supported by the Austrian Development Agency (ADA ‒ Agentur der Österreichischen Entwicklungszusammenarbeit), and 1,500 breeders, farmers and interested parties attend our field days every year.
