Consulting Services: Food Fraud

Food fraud -- the deliberate adulteration, substitution, tampering or misrepresentation of food -- has increased in significance as a result of our complex global food supply chain and costs the food industry an estimated $49 billion worldwide each year.

In recent years, high profile and international fraud scandals have harmed and even killed many innocent people. In anticipation of this growing fraud problem, NSF International has mobilised its considerable consulting, testing, auditing and training resources to develop solutions that can combat the potential risk of fraud in the food supply chain.

Food safety experts at NSF International agree with many of Professor Chris Elliott's recommendations for combating food fraud. Professor Elliott was commissioned by the UK government to conduct a thorough review in the wake of the 2013 UK horsemeat food fraud scandal. In the Elliott Review into the Integrity and Assurance of Food Supply Networks – Final Report, his recommendations seek to:

• Create a culture within food businesses that focuses on depriving those who seek to deceive consumers
• Develop a food supply system that is much more difficult for criminals to operate in
• Make more robust the role that government and specifically the FSA (UK Food Standards Agency) play in partnering industry efforts in these areas

NSF International, with 70 years of food safety and quality expertise, offers an integrated package of strategic and tactical services and resources to help companies around the world combat the risk of food fraud.
