A report by the De Olho nos Ruralistas Institute, which monitors policies related to Brazil's agribusiness industry, has pointed to the dominance of foreign multinationals in lobbying the sector in Brazil. Of the six companies with the most meetings of representatives with the Ministry of Agriculture between 2019 and 2022, only one, JBS, is Brazilian.
According to the report, most of the lobbying for agribusiness is done by the think tank Instituto Pensar Agro (IPA), which pools resources from more than a thousand companies and associations in the sector.
The organization has organized 160 official meetings . . .
