INDIGENOUS GROUPS SUE FRENCH SUPERMARKET CHAIN CASINO OVER AMAZON DEFORESTATION

On 3 March, France 24 reported that indigenous people from Brazil and Colombia sued retailer Casino in a French court over the selling of beef linked to land grabbing and deforestation in the Amazon.  It is the first time a French supermarket chain has been taken to court under a 2017 law.  The lawsuit alleges Casino regularly bought beef from 3 slaughterhouses owned by a major Brazilian meatpacker which allegedly sourced cattle from suppliers responsible for at least 50,000 hectares of deforestation between 2008 and 2020, according to the lawsuit.
