REALGRADE LEATHER™, a quality mark for New Zealand leather

New Zealand with its unique climate and vegetation pattern, provides a rich natural resource base and the New Zealand meat industry has an outstanding position in all aspects for sustainable leather:

Not one single animal in New Zealand is raised for its skin. The leather is a by-product of the meat and dairy industry and, if not processed to leather, would have to be dumped.

The REALGRADE LEATHER™ mark provides customers with a piece of mind for a socially and environmentally responsible supply chain of New Zealand hides and skins with the goal to offer ethical and sustainable leather.
