BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil's Ministry of Agriculture launched a program on Tuesday to ensure farmers comply with anti-corruption, environmental and child labor laws, after a highly publicized meatpacking scandal raised doubts about the country's food products.
The program set up by the ministry and the farm lobby CNA will grant an agricultural seal of integrity to companies that comply.
The agribusiness and utilities sectors are leading the adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies in Brazil, according to a recent study.
Some 45 percent of users polled in agribusiness have rolled out IoT technologies in their organizations, while 30 percent of utility companies have done the same, according to the research by IT services firm Logicalis.
By comparison, only 12 percent of manufacturing businesses in Brazil have implemented the technologies so far. This, according to the study, is due to inability to demonstrate the return on investment (ROI).
