Para State in Brazil to Introduce Cattle Integrity Program

12/06/2023

Para State in Brazil has over 24 million head of cattle on close to 300,000 farms extending over an area representing France, Spain and Norway combined.  Para is the second largest beef producing state after Mato Grosso.  The Integrity Program will mandate tracking of all cattle in order to control illegal deforestation of the Amazon rain forest. 

The program was announced at the U.N. COP 28 Climate Summit in anticipation of Para serving as the host for the COP30 Climate Summit in 2025.  In the absence of a traceability program for cattle, producers and traders were at a disadvantage as multinational corporations including JBS and Cargill are insisting on transparency to limit deforestation.
