Food Fraud: Risk & Mitigation

Secure your strategy to prevent exposure to fraudulent activity within your supply chain network.

In today's global food supply, companies are vulnerable to product substitution and economically motivated adulteration. Companies need documented processes to manage those vulnerabilities. Challenge how you would handle fraudulently compromised products in your supply chain with the help of our case study-based food fraud training.

Our new course relates directly to the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) certification standards and the FDA's final ruling for economically motivated adulteration as found in the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). All major certification standards require a documented food fraud vulnerability assessment to be developed and implemented. Our experts will walk you through case studies to better understand the impact of food fraud activities. You'll work in groups to identify risk factors, develop a food fraud vulnerability assessment, and assign potential mitigation strategies and management components.
