Every day, our unmistakably-red trucks collect the fresh hides from slaughterhouses of Northern Italy. The hides are then stacked in special boxes marked with Hide S.p.A. Brand.
The fresh hides are cleaned and trimmed by our operators, hanged one by one to the sorting machine, which weighs, divides and piles them into iron boxes marked with the appropriate category.
The hides are covered with sea salt using an automated procedure that ensures an optimal preservation.
After being desalted, the hides are mechanically divided by category and directed to the next processing steps.
The hides are folded and stacked on pallets stored in our refrigerated warehouse.
The pallets are loaded into trucks or into insulated containers, ready to leave our plant and reach every part of the world.
To satisfy the requests of our buyers, the hides can be also cutted through the use of a laser cutting machine into: shoulders, bellies and croupons.
