American products are manufactured all over the world by many countries. Finland has become one of the top producers, not only for America , but also for the world. Worldwide, Finland produces 25 percent of the world’s goods. The market of farm-raised foxes is dominated by Finland and today produces over half of the global fox pelt production. However, not all Finland fur products are fox pelts. Finland is also high on the production of minks. In investigations made, the police discovered 2,500 minks released from a single farm and the people responsible for this were suspected to be the animal rights activists. Finland fur farms are usually attacked by animal rights activists, because of their opposing views. Fur industries in Finland produce many of the fox furs. One of the top fox industries controls 1,400 farms and produces around two million fox furs yearly. The fur industries employee millions of people; in a single fur company about 10,000 people are employed to complete the fur products. Finland is one of the main producers of the world, not only of fur, but also of other fashion products.
