In an upcoming ILM webinar, Vitelco Managing Director Twan De Bie will discuss how the company is helping the industry move towards 100% traceability by describing its own system.
The leather division of Dutch calf and pork processors, Vitelco Leather, recently launched 100% fully traceable calfskin from birth to finished leather. Much of the 7,000 calf skins in its weekly production are processed in-house by the company and the traceable leather is marketed under the name âReVealâ. All of its production is fully traceable.
In this free webinar, Twan De Bie will be joined by presenters from Gibson Bass, Oeko-Tex and Spoor Leather, and will be followed by a Q&A session with ILM Content Director Martin Ricker.
