DNA Labelling – The smart way to follow materials through the supply chain

DNA Labelling – The smart way to follow materials through the supply chain

Dr. James A. Hayward, Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer of Applied DNA Sciences, will be presenting around the subject of DNA labelling in the leather supply chain.

Audited paper trails rely on people’s integrity and on signees being well informed. Being able to tag materials enables their presence to be demonstrated, indisputably, throughout the supply chain. Plus, the final product is forensically marked and protected from counterfeiters.

Applied DNA Sciences are the creators of unique botanical DNA-based tagging and authentication systems which have been successfully implemented to improve supply chain management, protecting textiles, electronic components, cash, vehicles and many other assets.

The leather industry supply chain is complex and there is currently no complete and reliable system for managing traceability. DNA labelling could provide the solution to secure the entire value chain, from the farm to the retailed product.
