Mitigating food fraud From June 2019

Mitigating food fraud

The possibility of being supplied fraudulently adulterated raw food materials is a risk many companies face. To avoid this and ensure that all product descriptions and claims are legal, accurate and verified, companies adopt a range of assurance and traceability systems, supported with appropriate analytical techniques.

To aid compliance, our member-funded research project will assess the practical application and limitations of simple analytical screening approaches. It will produce guidance for the preparation and use of authentic food materials for development of databases to enable checking of food ingredients.

The project is taking a number of approaches to build an understanding of the best use of analytical screening tools. This includes identifying which food types and application scenarios to study and the preparation of calibration sets on ‘authentic’ samples.
