Many beer labels only list the contents and ingredients that they are good in the eyes of the consumer and in order to protect their brand. Other industries are even more tactical that they label some ingredients as non-malted cereals and the question many ask themselves what that means. This could be the reason why the Federal court in Brazil gave an order and ruled that every beer label should clearly state all the cereals that have been used in making it. This relates to the clean-up campaign facilitated by the corporate integrity expert called Bruno Fagali.
The great contributions of Bruno Fagali cannot be ignored when it comes to pushing for integrity matters in Brazilian corporate world. The move by the Federal Judge Juliano Taveira Bernardes, the 4th Court of the Judiciary Section in the State of Goias, is a great support to the contribution of Bruno Fagali’s drive for transparency and integrity.

The whole journey of the ruling began in July 2016 when the Public Prosecutor’s Office in Brazil filed a lawsuit against 4 prominent brewers requesting that with 2 months all beers being processed and marketed should bear on their label the specific none-malted cereal is being used in their manufacturing. However, this raised stiff oppositions from the defendants and it was left for the Federal Court to do the ruling. After the in and out of the court sagas, the court has encouraged the efforts of Bruno Fagali for transparency in the Brazilian market. It is now official that only the beers that have labels that specify the real non-malted cereals used in their composition will be marketed.
