In his presentation, ‘Improving the raw material quality of Entrefino bred sheep and lambskins’, Rios will give an overview of the Entrefino value chain, which provides high-quality skins with unmatchable characteristics once transformed into leather and which are highly in demand in the marketplace. He will also explain the current risks due to the increase of skin defects that are mainly caused at farm and slaughter level and how the EU funded SELAMBQ project aims to unify all Entrefino value chain stakeholders, address the problems and improve the quality of the skins.
