5.2 Transparency & traceability of raw materials
We procure around 98 % of our raw hides locally from the UK and Ireland ( in 2021 , this figure was 100 % as shown ). These include 80.16 % ( 2021 calendar year ) of all Scottish grass-fed livestock – which enjoy the assurance of the UK Cattle Tracing Scheme ( CTS ) managed by the British Cattle Movement Service and ScotEID ( Livestock Traceability ). We are privileged to be able to source and trace our rawhides within the UK and Ireland as regulated within the Cattle Tracing Scheme . This ensures we can provide our customers with guaranteed provenance and ethical practices which are independently rated by the Animal Protection Index .
