Do Pasto ao Prato is a 100% independent initiative with the aim of increasing transparency in the livestock sector and supporting conscious consumption in Brazil. Use the app to verify the origin - and impact - of meat sold in your region.
Livestock is responsible for most of the deforestation in Brazil and is often associated with uncontrolled fires that often affect preserved natural environments. In addition, the sector still appears as one of the leaders in the occurrence of work analogous to slavery in the production areas. In the slaughter and processing units, not only cases of non-compliance with sanitary rules are observed, but also cases of mistreatment of animals before the moment of slaughter.
For this, after entering the codes on the product packaging, the application provides information about the slaughterhouse where the meat was processed, as well as other indicators associated with the production process.
This information is calculated from detailed data on fines, assessments and geospatial data on deforestation and fires in the purchase zone of each slaughterhouse. Sources are described in the methodological document, including:
Publicly available health infraction data provided by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply (http://extranet.agricultura.gov.br/sipe_cons/!ap_consulta_boleto_sicar_cons?p_tipo_consulta=)
The list of properties assessed for work analogous to slavery, publicly available by the Federal Public Ministry (https://www.gov.br/trabalho/pt-br/assuntos/fiscalizacao/combate-ao-trabalho-escravo)
Deforestation and fire data made publicly available by the National Institute for Space Research (http://www.obt.inpe.br/OBT/assuntos/programas/amazonia/prodes)
By using the DO PASTO AO PRATO application, you also become part of a citizen science initiative. The application connects the production and processing site to the product's point of sale. The more you use the app, the more transparent livestock farming in Brazil becomes.
This application was developed by Trase (https://trase.earth/?lang=pt_BR), a non-governmental and non-profit initiative, with the aim of increasing the transparency of agricultural commodity supply chains. Our partners in this project are Repórter Brasil, a Brazilian non-governmental organization with the aim of promoting reflection and action on the violation of the fundamental rights of people and workers in Brazil, and UCLouvain, a university in Belgium that researches sustainable agribusiness and other topics. related. This app is not a government initiative.
