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 9, 2021.
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.
