SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification
company, invites registrations for its complimentary webinar,
‘Mold Prevention in the Softlines Supply Chain,’ which will be presented on November
This event addresses an important issue for the leather
and footwear industry and provides an opportunity to find out more about
mitigating the problem.
The causes of mold, and how it grows and spreads will
be addressed, including issues in the supply chain such as safety and security
of source, the condition of packaging and shipping containers and the
management and control of warehousing.
The many constituent parts of the footwear supply
chain make leather vulnerable to mold, with the biggest potential risks coming
from staining and fat spurs. Damage is not always obvious straightaway, but it
can result in increased costs – from treatment, late deliveries, loss of sales
and brand damage or product recalls.
Suitable for anyone in the leather and footwear
industries with responsibility for quality control, the webinar is presented by
Paul Bridge, Deputy Vice President, Connectivity and Products, Global Footwear
and Leather. Paul has over 40 years of experience in technology and
manufacturing of footwear and leather materials.
