Companies that operate in the selling of meat in the Legal Amazon were invited to answer a questionnaire to assess their degree of control over suppliers and deforestation
The second cycle has been launched of the survey by Radar Verde, which is the only independent public indicator with the objective of identifying the origin of the meat sold by the Brazilian meat packing companies and retailers located in the Legal Amazon. The mapped companies have already received the questionnaire and have until August 1 to answer.
