Some of the largest orange juice producers in Brazil have been ordered to pay BRL 455 million (USD 226 million) by a judge for illegal labour practices. The court ordered the firms to put an end to outsourcing orange pickers, the New Age writes today. It said the companies should formally register 200,000 orange pickers.
The firms that were impacted by the ruling include Sucocitrico Cutrale Ltda., Louis Dreyfus Commodities Agroindustrial S/A, Citrovita Agroindustrial Ltda and Fischer S/A. The companies said they would appeal to the ruling and have been given 180 days to make the payment.
