Traceability - Webinar: Vitelco to reveal its solution for 100% traceability

In an upcoming ILM webinar, Vitelco Managing Director Twan De Bie will discuss how the company is contributing to the industry’s drive towards 100% traceability by outlining their own system. 




The leather division of Dutch veal and pork processors, Vitelco Leather, recently launched a 100% fully traceable calfskin leather from birth to finished leather. Much of the 7,000 calfskins from its weekly production are processed in-house by the company and the traceable leather is marketed as ‘ReVeal’. All of its production is fully traceable.


In this free-to-attend 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.
