Food fraud costs the global food industry approximately $49 billion per year. But what is food fraud and how can you protect your business from it? Food fraud is a collective term encompassing the intentional substitution, addition, tampering, or misrepresentation of food, food ingredients or packaging, or false or misleading statements about a product, all for economic gain. Although food fraud certainly isn’t a new phenomenon, the issue is growing in importance, thanks to ever-increasing complexities in the global food supply maze.
Now more than ever, you need to take serious preventative approaches to reduce the risks that food fraud poses to public health and safety, food integrity, and your brand’s reputation. Join expert speaker Janine Curll, BSc as she provides you with an in-depth, real-world look at food fraud today and introduces you to the developing tools that help you understand and identify food fraud vulnerabilities in your supply chains.
After attending this audio event, you will be able to access and effectively utilize the free Food Fraud Vulnerability Assessment tool. More and more private supplier schemes are requiring food businesses to undertake food fraud vulnerability assessments, and this tool will help you to understand and identify vulnerabilities in your own supply chains. You’ll also learn how to take your assessment even further – developing your own mitigation strategies and managing your food fraud control plan.
Here is a taste (no pun intended!) of what you will uncover:
