Food authenticity resources
A new bulletin, an output of the project Food authenticity – development of ‘next generation’ analytical technologies to protect the food industry from fraud, will provide members with information associated with food authenticity, adulteration and fraud. It will keep you informed of both specific and general issues, and provide information sources to help vulnerability risk assessment; there will also be updates on horizon scanning, detection technologies that can be used by industry, developments with standards, relevant surveys, research projects and events.
The first edition has general information on links to food fraud information sources, including the “Elliott Report” and Government and industry responses, and an in depth article looking into Stable Isotope Ratio analysis, a technique used in determining food origin. An on-line questionnaire with each bulletin will enable members to tailor subsequent bulletins, flag up issues and raise awareness.
