Suspended Cattle Buying

Meatpackers have suspended cattle buying in the Amazon.

When Greenpeace released its “Slaughtering the Amazon” report last year, it exposed the connection between cattle ranching and beef production to deforestation. At that time, meatpackers pledged to abstain from dealing with ranches that are harming the environment. Now, three of the largest meatpackers have followed through and have suspended purchases from more than 200 ranches that are on indigenous land, conservation areas, or recently deforested land. The decision is speculated to show acknowledgement of the harm beef production is having on the Amazon and responsiveness to Greenpeace’s and the public’s outcry to rainforest destruction for beef.
