Introduction to Food Fraud

Programme Coordinator: Lulanie Swanepoel
Course Level
Supplementary
Duration
Two Days
OVERVIEW & OBJECTIVES

Food Fraud is a serious issue.

It’s organised, criminal and widespread, but there are solutions that companies must explore to ensure product safety.  With the increasing focus on ensuring food supply chains are resilient to fraud and adulteration, it is inevitable that food businesses will need to implement some form of TACCP and/or VACCP in the near future to comply with food safety requirements. The basic principles of a Food Fraud preventative system will include identifying potential threats and emerging risks to food supply chains, understanding where the supply chain is vulnerable to these threats and putting in place control measures to reduce the risk.

  • An understanding of Food Fraud
