While many are concerned about the cost of traceability systems, and the longevity of the “trend”, Joe Gibson, Co-founder and Managing Director of Gibson Bass, explains that lacking a solid traceability system can quickly get you into hot water. With international shipping in chaos, you need to know that you can identify issues with your customers as they arise, and know exactly where your hides and leathers are going. The company has developed an accurate stamping device which can identify hides and leather including drop splits through the entire leathermaking process.

Gibson Bass will be joined by presenters from Vitelco Leather, Oeko-Tex and Spoor Leather to discuss why and how companies across the industry are adopting traceability systems and what the future entails for the supply chain in this essential webinar, free-to-attend, “Traceability and Transparency in the leather supply chain 2021”.

  • “Traceability: Why and how?” – Joe Gibson, Co-founder and Managing Director, Gibson Bass.
  • “ReVeal: 100% Traceability at Vitelco Leather” – Twan De Bie, Managing Director, Vitelco Leather.
  • “From farm to store: a pilot for full transparency in the leather supply chain.” – Dr Dominik Kinschel, Product Manager Standard 100 & Leather Standard, Oeko-Tex and Birgitte Holgaard Langer, Business Development Director, Spoor Leather.

The webinar presentations will be followed by a Q&A session with each presenter, moderated by ILM Content Director Martin Ricker.
