In recent years, the topic of public health is becoming more and more pronounced. New viruses, sicknesses emerge affecting both humans and animals. 

This also changes how consumers approach end-products, especially animal by-products. SafeDown was announced as a response to a clear need for a health safety label, which collects health certifcations, documents, and information, and makes them available to partners and customers in the industry.

SafeDown is in line with the strictest health rules in the world, the European Union’s health rules regarding animal by-products. It is supported by additional documents and certificates.

The SafeDown label ensures that the product meets the highest requirements regarding the health and hygiene of the animals and their by-products, during each step of the manufacturing process.
