Brazilian company delivers first shipment of leather from 100% traced cattle

SAO PAULO, Jan 23 (Reuters) - A Brazilian company has announced the arrival of the first shipment of leather in Europe from cattle raised without causing deforestation.

Durli Leathers, Latin America's second largest leather processor after JBS SA (JBSS3.SA), reported on Tuesday that around 1,000 "wet blue" hides arrived in Italy earlier this week.

The shipment contains all the information about the animal from which the leather was produced, traceable by a QR Code, as part of a protocol to maintain sustainability in production, said Durli Leathers.

The initiative is a response to pressure to promote sustainable practices and combat climate change, which scientists blame for extreme weather events that bring record temperatures, droughts, forest fires and floods.

Durlicouros is part of a group of Brazilian companies that started, last year, a system to certify cattle from the Amazon region, processed for meat and leather, with an origin free from deforestation.

The Amazon rainforest is one of the world's most important carbon reservoirs.

The initiative to monitor all stages of leather production currently tracks more than 113,000 animals individually using blockchain technology, the company said.

So far, the system covers a small fraction of Brazil's 234 million head cattle herd, but its promoters say it is a step towards allowing consumers to make informed choices when buying products.
