Industrial down
At our Kettenkamp facility we process natural down from our subsidiaries in Siberia & Ukraine...

Subsidiaries in Siberia and eastern Europe supply the facility located in northern Germany with natural down which is a "green" auxiliary product of goose meat (at the meat processor) - a natural & sustainable ecological cycle, which even extends as far as composting.

Since the company was founded in 1919, we have been selecting goose feathers and down from smallholder farming structures in Pommerania and Masuria. When the company was first established Pommerania and Masuria were part of Germany and we maintain close working relationships with our colleagues there through various cooperations relating to the poultry sector.

Processing takes places exclusively in Germany using 4 down-washing/cleansing systems followed by sorting: 3000kg per day.

Our Siberian daughter company:

The Siberian ALTAI goose is traditionally kept in a smallholder farming structure. The ALTAI region is a mountain range which reaches 4500m at its peak and is located on the border of Siberia and Kazakhstan. A special feature is that these geese often freely roam in the farm area and pick out tasty titbits from the meadows and ears of wheat. European and eastern European geese are mainly held in professional housing systems and slaughtered after 3-4 months. Siberian geese ( - known as snow geese by the farmers in this region - ) live much longer - often these free-range geese live the full period from spring through to the end of winter in February/March. The Siberian Altai goose can develop slowly and naturally in this rearing process. The down and feather of the bird is therefore also significantly more mature, fluffier and more durable than factory farmed geese. This sustainability in farming is not necessarily in harmony with the pursuit of profit - but conforms with the Russian tradition and, of course, does not allow for mass production! The down of Altai geese is a kind of Eider version of goose down: unique and exceptionally fluffy.
