The article reports on Brazil's, which already undermines the European beef and poultry industries with low cost supplies, plan to be Europe's major supplier of biofuel. Brazil is believed to be well placed to exploit biofuel markets having unlimited land resources, low-cost base and experience as one of the biggest soya exporters. Moreover, Peter Mandelson, European Union (EU) trade commissioner, claims that buying biofuel from Brazil makes sense on economic and environmental grounds.
