How to minimize the risk of food fraud due to coronavirus
30 Apr 2021

The food supply chain can be daunting due to its extraordinary complexity. With this complexity comes the opportunity of food fraud. The coronavirus crises amplify the opportunities for fraudsters dramatically as in-person audits are no longer possible to uncover hidden rooms and storage areas or forbidden materials. This places a significant burden on food analysts to find food fraud through laboratory testing.

In this webinar, Dr. Bert Popping, Managing Director at FOCOS, will explore the recent developments in the molecular methods field and put these methods in the context of standardization and existing public and private law. Dr. Popping will highlight the activities of government bodies, not for profit organisations like AOAC, ILSI and USP, and private law schemes like BRC, IFS, and SQF, and emphasize how the development of methods for species determination can help to detect adulteration.

  • The new risks for food fraud in the supply chain due to coronavirus
