retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Dow Jones reports that Walmart plans to continue its ban on beef from the northern Brazilian state of Para, a ban that was instituted after Greenpeace charged “that Brazilian meatpackers were buying beef from deforested areas of the Amazon region,” according to the story.

Walmart has been joined in the ban by Carrefour and Brazilian chain Pao de Acucar.
