HEFEL Down with RDS certification

The entire HEFEL Down range is now RDS certified in 2018.

The entire HEFEL Down range is now RDS (Responsible Down Standard) certified in 2018. This certification guarantees that feathers and down are sourced from ducks and geese farmed in species-appropriate and healthy conditions. The standard applies to the entire supply chain – from the farm/poultry farm to the finished product - in order to guarantee seamless traceability. The welfare of the animals is the highest priority - this requires best conditions for keeping and feeding the poultry (no force-feeding!) and also a ban on live-plucking.
