Vegan Verification is an innovative programme from Eurofins | Chem-MAP which risk assesses materials and components, as well as providing testing of chemicals and materials, to establish whether any animal or by-products have been used.

The input components to Mattes & Ammann’s circular knitted fabric were tested by Eurofins | Chem-MAP alongside the finished material for animal derived ingredients using a combination of of PCR analysis, FTIR analysis and fibre ID for the presence of mammal, bird, fish, insect, crustacean and mollusc DNA.

 Mattes & Ammann intend to use this textile in a wide range of industries including automotive, mattress and medical.

 Mattes & Ammann are one of the first manufacturers within the German marker to have been awarded the Vegan Verification mark from Eurofins | Chem-MAP. The verification provides the customers of Mattes & Ammann with supplier transparency and confidence that their products do not contain any traces of animal derivatives, through the use of scientific evidence beyond self-made supplier claims.” states Lottie York, Sustainable Chemistry Programme Lead, Eurofins | Chem-MAP – Vegan Verification programme.
