Greenpeace released a report exposing the direct links between cattle ranching and deforestation in the state of Mato Grosso, the area of the Amazon with the highest rate of deforestation. Cattle ranching is the primary driver of forest destruction in the Brazilian Amazon, with 79.5 per cent of deforested land used for cattle pasture. Greenpeace is campaigning to expose the trade of cattle raised on illegally deforested land and is calling for all the companies across the world to refuse to buy products sourced from Amazon farms that have carried out illegal deforestation. It wants consumers to pressure supermarkets and other high-street brands identified in the report to clean-up supply chains by refusing to deal with such farms. After the release of the report, Marfrig announced a moratorium that prevents them from buying cattle raised in newly deforested areas within the Amazon.
