Food fraud encompasses a wide range of deliberate acts. Most common among these are the addition of non-authentic substances, and the removal or replacement of authentic substances without the purchaser’s knowledge.
The driving force behind these acts is usually economic gain. Knowing the current meta trends affecting your materials, ingredients and their associated risks is an essential part of the vulnerability assessment.
SGS, the testing, inspection, and certification company is hosting a webinar on ‘Expanding from food fraud surveillance to the detection of unknown risks in the supply chain’ on 1 September 2021 at 2030 hrs IST.
The objective of this webinar (45-minute presentation/15-minute Q&A) is to discuss the two levels of thinking required when establishing a successful food fraud program in your organization. The first is done by determining vulnerabilities in your supply chain on the categories, products, and materials you work with. Known, high-risk products need to be monitored continually for concerns of fraud. However, there is another equally important dimension. How do you go about detecting emerging, unknown risks in a proactive manner? Instead of responding when something occurs, how can you be prepared before it even happens? Both aspects are important and will be addressed in this interactive session.
The webinar will update on global food fraud trends, help attendees to effectively monitor the known risks with the food fraud incident capabilities of SGS Digicomply Ultimate, and explain how to find early warning signals and unknown supply chain risks through predictive analytics.
The speakers for the webinar are Nicola Colombo, Global head of SGS Digicomply, SGS; and David Psomeadis, head of Laboratory/Business Development manager, Imprint Analytics.
The webinar is aimed at all food quality, safety, supply chain, and regulatory compliance professionals.
