Brazilian Table contributes to the global debate on sustainable livestock farming at a meeting in Colombia

The Brazilian Sustainable Livestock Table (GTPS) actively participated in the Innovation Tour: Caribbean Region of Colombia, which took place between March 27th and 31st. The event was attended by national sustainable beef tables and representatives from different countries to discuss global and regional aspects of sustainability in livestock farming.

The executive director of the Brazilian Table, Luiza Bruscato, who is also part of the board of directors of the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (GRSB), represented Brazil alongside associate Fernanda Cordeiro, from Minerva Foods. Among the approximately 100 participants, representatives from 11 other countries were present: Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Canada, Colombia, Ecuador, United States, Mexico, New Zealand, Paraguay and Peru.

The discussions covered definitions of sustainable and regenerative livestock farming, and the relationship between carbon sequestration and biodiversity, during the symposium that was part of the program. During the event, each table had space to present their actions and projects in progress, in addition to highlighting the differences in production systems and the challenges of the country itself.

“These were fundamental moments and spaces for sharing experiences and learning between countries. It is essential that there be constant dialogues in the production chain to ensure that meat production is carried out responsibly and with positive impacts”, says Luiza. The Innovation Tour also included technical visits to farms and slaughterhouses to learn about beef production in the Colombian Caribbean.

The Brazilian Table is an initiative that brings together different actors in the Brazilian livestock production chain to debate and promote the sustainability of the sector. “Participation in international events reinforces our commitment to the dissemination of sustainability that is already part of Brazil's production and to the search for improvement and progression of these actions”, concludes the director.
