Dear President Gordon Reid and CEO Frans Muller,
With the Amazon in flames, your company must take responsibility for the impacts of your products and stop financing this reckless environmental destruction.
As one of the largest and, therefore, influential supermarkets in the world, Stop & Shop must end its partnership with Cargill, the largest trader of soy from Brazil, and to call on President Bolsonaro to reinstate protections for the Amazon!

Stop funding environmental destruction. As one of the nation’s largest supermarket chains, Costco has a major influence over the food we have access to and how it was produced. Customers trust Costco to deliver high quality food from responsible suppliers. Although Costco claims to care about customer sustainability concerns, your supply chain tells a different story.
Costco meat comes from some of the most environmentally destructive suppliers in the entire food industry—Cargill, JBS, and Tyson Foods. Cargill and JBS played lead roles in driving the devastating fires in the Amazon last summer, and all three are responsible for widespread water pollution, soil erosion, and runaway climate emissions.
Every contract Costco signs with these destructive companies condemns future generations to a world of climate chaos and broken ecosystems. But you have the power to change that through more responsible business practices.
Our planet can't wait any longer. I urge Costco to immediately drop all contracts with meat suppliers that are destroying rainforests and polluting our waters, and instead use Costco’s economic power to shift our food system toward regenerative farming practices that protect our forests, climate, water, and health.

Stop funding environmental destruction. Cargill has only gotten away with its bad behavior for so long because it is not a consumer-facing brand. But we know now the food at Cargill's customers, McDonald’s, Stop & Shop, & Target is destroying the rainforests and has been produced with child slavery. We will not keep quiet.
Cargill and JBS played lead roles in driving the devastating fires in the Amazon last summer, and are responsible for widespread water pollution, soil erosion, and runaway climate emissions.
Indigenous peoples who depend on forests have had their land encroached upon by Cargill-linked soy plantations in Brazil. They have been forced off of their traditional lands and have experienced sharp increases in cancer, birth defects, miscarriages, and other illnesses linked to pesticides and herbicides used to grow soy – often sprayed by planes directly overhead.
Our planet can't wait any longer. I urge Cargill to immediately drop all contracts with soy suppliers that are destroying rainforests and polluting our waters, and instead use Cargill's economic power to shift our food system toward regenerative farming practices that protect our forests, climate, water, and health.
