Horsehair processing and promotion of responsible leather tanning (Mongolia)


Titre : Horsehair processing and promotion of responsible leather tanning (Mongolia)

Pays : Mongolie

Dates : Start date : 1 March 2014 End date : 7 April 2021

Identification projet : NL-KVK-27378529-PSI13MN21

Programme : Private Sector Investment programme (PSI)

Endero B.V. together with Mrs Van Staden (Honorary Cultural Envoy of Mongolia and founder of Stichting Made in Mongolia) and local partner Sooton LLC will set up a new joint venture in Erdenet, Mongolia. This company will build a factory for the processing of horsehair. Mongolia is a major source of horsehair for a wide range of uses. However, today no value adding takes place in the country as unsorted horsehair is mostly exported to China for processing. The project aims to buy horsehair mainly from identified herder groups under fair-trade conditions and to cooperate with casing (intestines) and tanning (rawhides) companies in the joint sourcing of animal by-products, to have an important competitive edge in the sourcing of horsehair aside from cost savings. The cooperation with the tanneries will be further secured by a secondary component of the project which aims to promote responsible leather tanning by technical assistance to two reference tanneries. The joint venture will be supported by Stahl Holdings B.V., the producer of chemicals and dyes for leather processing.

Partenaire (s) : Netherlands Enterprise Agency, Stahl Holdings B.V., Sooton LLC, Endero B.V.

Budget Total : €649,200
