Intentional deception using food for economic gain, or food fraud, has been an ongoing challenge for the food and drink industry since the beginning of time. However, as the global supply chain continues to grow, and becomes more and more complex, so too do the stakes for everyone linked to this chain from manufacturers, retailers, and raw ingredient suppliers to regulators and the consumer.
The Food Fraud eCongress is a complimentary 8-part webinar series, which will bring you access to some of the latest academic and scientific research being conducted into food fraud today as well as important industry guidance and key strategies to help you identify your own potential vulnerabilities within the supply chain.
As part of this series, Jon's Spencer's webinar will focus identifying criminal opportunities within food markets.
