What was – and can still be – a notoriously opaque supply chain ruled by a network of brokers, ALLIED has opened up access directly to the farms for an unmatched level of transparency for all those buying down products from any one of our partners.

Sourcing

As a by-product of the food industry, the value of the down only accounts for about 2-8% of the total value of the bird. This makes it very difficult for an industry of relatively low value to have any access or visibility making it difficult to fully understand where your down came from.

ALLIED has changed that over the last several decades by establishing strong relationships and working closely with farmers and collectors in order to source direct so we could ensure leading animal welfare practices as well as have complete traceability for every cluster of down that passes through our doors.
