Down & the bedding industry



 

FOUR PAWS has launched a campaign calling on the bedding industry to take responsibility for where it sources its down from, to ensure cruel practices such as "live-feather plucking" and force-feeding for foie gras are excluded from the supply chain.

Good traceability

 

A good traceability system includes controls throughout all steps of the down supply chain. In the ideal case, audits begin at the parent farm and end at the final product. Good traceability systems include: controls of as many of their farms as possible, audits have to be annual and most of the audits have to be unannounced. It should not be allowed to keep a group of cruelly treated animals on the same farm as animals that are not live plucked or force-fed. Controls also have to be strict at the slaughterhouse and the washing facility, to make sure certified down is not mixed with down from force-fed animals.
