Practical ways to detect and prevent fraud in the food industry

The risk of food fraud has been a major concern for all responsible food businesses for many years, and several high-profile cases have reinforced these concerns.  Good progress has been made on the classification of types of fraud in the food industry and fraud vulnerability assessments are now in common use – but practical measures to detect and prevent fraud in the food industry are still in early stages of development.  This presentation will cover some practical techniques to detect and prevent food fraud and will also introduce some new technology available to help food businesses to protect their customers and their brands.
