Public Prosecution Service (MPF) files suit against 27 slaughterhouses in Mato Grosso, Amazonas and Roraima

Brazil's Public Prosecution Service (MPF) is filing suit against 27 slaughterhouses in Mato Grosso, Amazonas and Roraima states that have not signed the adjustment of conduct terms for environmental and social standards in the meat production chain in the Amazon biome.

The agreement provides that slaughterhouses undertake to stop slaughtering and selling cattle from areas embargoed by the Brazilian Institute of the Environment and Renewable Resources (IBAMA) for illegal deforestation and farms located within indigenous lands or which are on the slavery list. The deadline for compliance expired on April 5.

According to the MPF, cross-referencing of data from transport permits, with information on the place of origin and the destination for slaughter, showed that these slaughterhouses bought animals from farms that had illegally engaged in deforestation, that do not have environmental licenses, which are on the slavery list or which or on indigenous land.
