The Chinese multinational Cofco Agri, a company involved in the processing of agricultural products, has been fined for work similar to slavery. Thirty-one employees working in soybean management in Nova Maringá, 392 km from Cuiabá, Mato Grosso, Brazil, were rescued because they were without drinking water and housed in overcrowded and unhealthy places, among other irregularities, according to the Superintendence of Labor (SRTE-MT) ) And the Public Labor Ministry (MPT-MT).
One of the workers rescued was still a victim of a work accident and is undergoing treatment. The New Maringá Cargo Workers' Union, responsible for recruiting the employees, should respond by grooming and reducing someone to the condition analogous to that of slave labor.
In a statement, the multinational's press office said that it chose to hire employees with the participation of the union and that once it received the complaint about the situation of workers adopted the necessary adjustment measures before the supervision of the Ministry of Labor.
Cofco Agri is part of Cofco Internacional, a group present in 29 countries and had a turnover of US $ 16.9 billion last year, according to the company's website.
According to the Ministry of Labor, this was the largest operation to rescue workers in conditions analogous to slavery since 2009 when 78 people were rescued at a rural estate in Sapezal, 473 km far from the capital.
