Visualizing cattle supply chains in Brazil to enhance traceability and strengthen deforestation monitoring.
WHAT IS VISIPEC?
Visipec is a new add-on traceability tool that works alongside the existing monitoring systems used by Brazilian meatpackers to provide the cattle sector with enhanced supply chain visibility and more effective deforestation monitoring.
WHY IS IT NEEDED?
Visipec helps close a critical gap in the supply chain traceability and monitoring of indirect suppliers, which has posed significant challenges for the cattle sector in Brazil for many years. With Visipec, meatpackers can now incorporate indirect suppliers into their systems, helping strengthen deforestation-free assurances for beef and leather products.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Visipec integrates information from public data sets, which were once siloed and disconnected, into a seamless tool that works alongside the monitoring systems currently used by meatpackers in the Brazilian Amazon. It links direct and indirect cattle suppliers together at scale, significantly improving the daily decision-making process for cattle purchases.
