The "avoidable crisis" is an investigation that reveals the disastrous impacts caused by soy production in Argentina and Paraguay’s Gran Chaco. The soy is then sent to feed and meat processors and used to raise the livestock for the chicken, pork, beef, eggs, and dairy sold by many European supermarkets and restaurants.
