Identifying Potentially Sensitive Animal Species in Your Leather Supply Chain

Identifying Potentially Sensitive Animal Species in Your Leather Supply Chain

Recently, there have been accounts of third party investigators identifying potentially sensitive animal species in leathergoods produced by high-street brands and retailers.

Naturally, many brands, retailers and manufacturers are concerned with the implications of identifying potentially sensitive animal species in a finished leather product. If sensitive or even banned animal species are identified, the financial risks of recalling products and receiving fines is significant, plus the potential damage to brand reputation.

 

High Risk Product Groups

Generally, BLC has found that the most high-risk items tend to be leather products made from skins as opposed to hides. Typically, these are low cost items such as gloves, wallets and small leather items.  

If your company produces or retails within any of these high-risk categories, BLC recommend you test the animal origins of your leather to provide assurance to end-users and consumers that there are no sensitive animal species present within your supply chain.

 

BLC Can Help You Identify High Risk Animal Skins

BLC understands that correctly identifying the animal origins of leather can be difficult and potentially expensive, however BLC can offer a cost-effective solution to this sensitivity.
