            "There are two principles behind GPA’s beef sourcing policy, implemented to attenuate the risks of deforestation and human rights abuses across the supply chain: — Traceability and transparency: : all GPA beef suppliers are required to declare information on the slaughterhouses (rank 1) and ranches (rank 2) they work with, and register this information in the GPA traceability system; — Geo-monitoring : GPA is not in direct contact with the ranches. Suppliers use a satellite geomonitoring system to verify that these ranches meet the zero-deforestation policy criteria, as listed below. If this verification process finds non-compliance, then the ranch in question is blacklisted and not allowed to sell products through GPA. The policy is based on the social and environmental criteria specified in 2009 for cattle sourcing throughout the Brazilian territory."
