Traceable raw hides from local, responsible suppliers.
Quality, suitability, traceability and accountability. 39.2% of our rawhides are sourced on our doorstep in Scotland from grass-fed net-zero carbon farms. That’s 79.9% of Scotland’s entire output of prime hides.
Our hides come from healthy cattle herds, certified at the highest level for animal welfare by the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation.
These rawhides are all a by-product of the beef and dairy industries, and we source them directly from licensed abattoirs that operate under UK and EU regulations, and are subject to daily inspections by Government veterinarians.
We ensure that all our rawhide suppliers comply with the Five Freedoms Principles of animal husbandry, developed by the UK Farm Animal Welfare Council and adopted by animal welfare organisations around the world. Collagen that we produce can be supplied with an Edible Certificate, which enables us to sell on our by-products in turn for use in a wide range of other industries. Just another way we can reduce waste, and avoid landfill.
Our suppliers became signatories to our Code of Conduct.
We will be accredited to the UN Global Compact.
We will have verified the integrity of our supply chain to meet internationally accepted standards.
We will have zero process waste to landfill through circular manufacturing, and become carbon neutral, as reported under SECR.
Our annual Sustainability Report summarises our activities, commitments and innovation agenda. All supporting and driving us towards a more sustainable future.
Responsible sourcing is part of our effort under Goal 15 of the UN Global Compact: Life on land. Learn more about our raw hides and sourcing in our report.
