Preventing food fraud will always present challenges.
The variability of supply chains, changing geopolitical risk factors, and environmental factors impacting raw ingredients’ availability are just some of the dynamics that can increase the risk of fraud.
Risk management focuses on reducing vulnerabilities and adopting a systematic approach to assessing food production and supply chain security.
A good mitigation plan will anticipate as many challenges as possible. It will also include procedures to ensure that new and emerging threats are identified and considered.
