Saga Furs Oyj encourages its suppliers to commit to the certification system. Our new strategy aims at even tighter integration of certification into the Saga Furs brand.
The company now offers Finnraccoon and fox collections coming exclusively from certified farms.
Saga Certification by Finnish Standards
Saga Furs Oyj supports the Farm Certification project established by The Finnish Fur Breeders’ Association (FIFUR) in 2005. Saga Certification by Finnish Standards requires documentation and continuous development of breeding standards above those contained in European legislation.
Saga Furs Oyj has a system in place for the daily monitoring of certified farms.
In the financial period that started in November 2014, the company receives fox and Finnraccoon strictly from certified farms. As only about 20% of the company’s mink pelt selection comes from Finland and other mink pelts come from various countries in Europe, offering 100% certified mink pelt selections requires more time for sorting and logistics. The company aims to implement changes in the sorting of mink pelts in the 2015-16 financial and sales period to enable the introduction of the first certified mink pelt selections.
