Brazil is facing a backlash from international businesses and activists over plans to pass a land reform that critics say risks fuelling a surge in deforestation in the Amazon.
More than 40 European companies, including Tesco and Marks and Spencer, have warned they were planning to boycott Brazilian products if the bill passes. A vote in Congress is due in the coming days.
