Tainted Beef

Ver en español

A new report by the Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) reveals how beef sold in Colombian supermarkets is fueling illegal deforestation in protected Amazon forests and contributing to financing armed groups.

The groundbreaking investigation traces beef originating from illegally deforested areas to supermarket chains such as Grupo Exito and Colsubsidio, where it is sold to consumers. Through innovative data analysis and extensive field investigations, EIA uncovered a system marred by corruption, extortion, cattle laundering, and illegal forest clearing in the Colombian Amazon.
