Tannery customers asked us to create a traceability solution, so we did. As it is not in our nature to just ’tick a box’, we set out to deliver the ultimate solution to tracing leather hides. Meet Leathertracer: Industry-proof. As fast as your operational speed. Safe for all staff. And above all: marking an unmistakable ID that stays with the hide throughout the tannery journey and beyond.
The Leathertracer ID is stored in a secure database. Farm or feedlot information is captured where available, as well as any other information you desire. Use Mindhive’s Leathertracer app to instantly bring up all hide information. Give your customers access to this app to complete the circle of transparency.
Leathertracer has been designed to fulfil a robust promise of traceability, while minimising the strain on existing operations.

Use as a powerful tool during LCA's and LWG audits

Utilise data to help shape quality improvement dialogues with suppliers
Created for external traceability, Leathertracer offers another feature. Combined with Model V Grading, it can help to optimise processes within the tannery and facilitate data for critical analysis and Life Cycle Assessments.
Deploying Leathertracer alongside Mindhive’s Model V Grading opens up the door to many efficiency gains. Tracking hide-specific grading information throughout the various tannery processes enables endless optimisation.
The hardware for Leathertracer is mostly predefined. However, each deployable unit is custom fitted to the specific plant – as varying heights or space come in play.
Mindhive offers two versions of Leathertracer: one for tanneries, one for meat plants. Fill out the form below to find out how Mindhive could help you achieve traceability.
