Your food fraud solutions...

Hi there!
I am an expert in food defence and so, food fraud.  I’ve used my extensive expertise to develop a range of solutions for you, which meet the BRC, SQF, IFS and FSSC 22000 standards.  So, no matter which way you prefer to work there is a solution for you. I am the co-author of the book ‘Assessing Threat Vulnerability for Food Defence’ (which covers food fraud) and I have used this methodology, which has been endorsed by Professor Chris Elliott, to create a documentation pack and also eLearning course for you.  Read on, to find out which solution is the one for you…

GFSI Food Fraud

What’s new in Edition 2?

Our threat vulnerability book has been restructured, so that it flows through the raw material supply-chain to the product supply-chain.  Now that GFSI have updated their standard, their benchmarking requirements give equal gravitas to both on site threats as they do supply chain threats, therefore the book has been equally sectioned, to allow the methodology to be used for either on site threats, supply chain threats, or of course, both.

The scope of the book has been widened to take into account the GFSI benchmarking requirements, and therefore, the other GFSI recognised standards such as SQF, FSSC 22,000, IFS, as well as BRC.

GFSI and also the standards recognised by them, use a number of different terms such as food defence, food security and food fraud.  In Edition 2 we explain how food fraud, food terrorism and food sabotage all sit together, under the one heading; food defence.

To support this view and to add further clarity, we have provided a simple way of naming the assessments; raw material vulnerability and product vulnerability, which is aligned with the structure of the book.

The pioneering methodology has been reviewed and improved further, to allow for likelihood of the detection.  This improvement in the threat vulnerability scoring system, allows for assessment of threats where the product is packed and still at risk. Therefore, the methodology can now be used not only by manufacturing sites, but also by farms, agents and brokers and storage and distribution facilities.

Our book has also been reviewed & recommended by Professor Chris Elliott – leader of the UK government’s independent review of food systems following the 2013 horsemeat scandal.

What’s does the pack contain?
