Small farmers to join Brazil sustainable cane move

SAO PAULO (Reuters) – Dozens of small and medium-scale farmers in Brazil’s Sao Paulo state will grow sugar cane certified as meeting strict social and environmental standards, the region’s cane producers association said late on Thursday.

Several ethanol companies like Cosan and Louis Dreyfus signed deals to produce and export verified sustainable ethanol in the last couple of months to address consumers’ concerns over the impact of ethanol which powers almost all the country’s new cars.

But now some of the state’s small producers in the world’s top sugar cane producer will be able to join them.
