For the first time in 2019, Eurofins | BLC will be holding the popular 1 Day Leather Processing Course in Kolkata, India on Wednesday 6th February 2019.

Ideal for tannery staff, leather processors, chemical companies as well as those interested in a greater understanding of raw to finished leather processing, this course provides an overview of the whole leather making process in just one day and will be delivered by a Eurofins | BLC leather expert who has many years of commercial tanning and leather manufacturing experience.
