Single agreement offered to regulate the beef industry in the Amazon

Brazil’s Public Prosecutor (MPF) has proposed a unified agreement to representatives of beef slaughterhouses and exporters for the environmental and social alignment of the supply chain throughout the Amazon region. The proposal of a single agreement for all the companies and buyers who operate in the Amazon answers the demand from companies and could guarantee advantages throughout the sector, with market equality.

The MPF has reported that so far 97 companies that buy and process cattle in Pará, Acre, and Mato Grosso states have signed up to the agreements on sustainable farming. The MPF wants to extend the agreement to Rondônia, Amazonas, Amapá, Tocantins, Maranhão and Roraima in a single text, standardizing the obligations and incentives for farmers in every state in the Amazon.

Under the MPF’s agreement, beef processors and exporters commit to buy raw materials only from farmers who do not commit illegal logging, have georeferenced properties, have started the licensing process and have no incidents of slave labor, invasion of indigenous lands, traditional communities or conservation units.
