Deforestation Risks for Brazil’s Big Meatpackers

Chain Reaction Research (CRR) hosted a webinar on Jan. 14th to discuss their report analyzing the financial risks Brazil’s three largest meatpackers face from deforestation.

JBS, Marfrig, and Minerva are the largest meat processors in Brazil, dominating beef processing and exports. Our latest report assesses the companies’ exposure to deforestation and analyses their market, reputation, and technology risks.

Our analysis shows:

  • The companies show little progress in monitoring indirect supply chains;
  • They face material financial risks from European investors;
  • Chinese and European market shifts create market risks;
  • And differing business models create distinct risks amongst the top three meatpackers

Chain Reaction Research held a webinar on these findings on January 14th, 2021.
