Vitelco Leather is a Netherlands based Tannery and a member of PALI Group. Key at Vitelco Leather is the fully integrated, sustainable supply chain which starts with a young calf and goes all the way up to delicious veal and beautiful leather.
A top product starts with the best ingredients. We therefore devote a great deal of care to selecting and purchasing our calves from dairy farms.
Our veal farmers do their utmost to provide good and professional housing (in groups) and take proper care of the animals. Our specialists maintain close contact with the veal farmers, also regarding the care of the skin.
Our specialists also supervise the veal farms with respect to the calves’ nutritional requirements. We provide the animals with good quality feed.
During transport, we focus on animal welfare and on protecting their skin. We therefore ensure that the animals are transported with care and attention.
We have our own professional slaughterhouse dedicated to calves. All our calfskins and calfskin leather products come from calves that we slaughter ourselves in a respectful way. Our employees handle the skins very carefully during the slaughter process.
The fresh skins go straight from our cold store to our tannery where they are turned into gorgeous calf leather products or semi-finished products as specified by our customers.
Because we control the entire supply chain we are able to trace our hides individually back to the farm and the individual animal.
