by Maria Luisa Mendonça, Fabio T. Pitta and Carlos Vinicius Xavier TNI
An examination of ethanol production in Brazil, highlighting the role of financial capital, the territorial expansion of agribusiness and the impacts on labour relations and indigenous peoples and peasant farmers. application/pdf iconThe Sugarcane Industry and the global economic crisis (PDF 2.11MB) In rural Brazil, we have observed that the expansion of monocropping for the production of agrofuels, namely sugarcane ethanol, continues. Ethanol made from sugarcane is said to be Brazil's main source of agro-energy, considering the volume produced, the total area used for sugarcane production and the amount invested in the expansion of the sugar-energy industrial park.

That report cited ‘widespread’ mislabeling of Chilean Seabass and implied that fraud was occurring in the USA market.
