SGS invites leather and footwear industry to complimentary webinar to help reduce risk of mold and save costs

SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, will host a complimentary webinar on October 15, 2020, to help those working in the leather and footwear industry understand and tackle mold.

A significant issue for the leather and footwear industry, mold can grow on almost any substance, but leather is an ideal food source. This makes the footwear supply chain, its factories, storage sites and transportation, ideal locations for the fungus to grow and thrive.

In addition, mold takes time to develop, which often means that the party blamed for allowing it to multiply is not always responsible. However, once mold has appeared it’s important to treat it to avoid damage to products.

Why join this webinar?
The impact of mold growth is extra cost, which may include the cost of mold treatment, late deliveries, loss of sales, brand reputation or product recalls. This webinar will be of particular interest to those involved in the leather and footwear industries with responsibility for quality control.

The webinar will be led by SGS’s industry expert, Paul Bridge, Deputy VP CRS Global Footwear and Leather. Paul will focus on the causes of mold, share experiences and explore prevention methods.
