Army and Aeronautics buy family agriculture products in four states

Small producer

The two forces will open public calls in the amount of R $ 2 million in Mato Grosso do Sul, Pernambuco, Rio Grande do Sul and Rondônia

Institutions and groups of the Brazilian Army and the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) will launch five public calls for the purchase of family agriculture products in Mato Grosso do Sul, Pernambuco, Rio Grande do Sul and Rondônia, through the Institutional Purchase of the Food Acquisition (PAA). In total, the two forces will invest more than $ 2 million in local smallholder products.

In Institutional Purchasing, family farmers commercialize products in a simplified way, which strengthens family farming and promotes the population's access to quality food. The buying agencies, in turn, have the opportunity to receive typical products of the region, fresh and diversified, collaborating with the local development.

Agrarian reform organizations, farmers, fish farmers, extractivists, artisanal fisherfolk, indigenous people and members of remaining communities of rural quilombos and other traditional peoples with a Pronaf Aptitude Statement (DAP) can participate in the public calls.
