Food Fraud Conference will be held on 1 March 2018, at the Radisson Blu Portman Hotel, 22 Portman Square, Marylebone, London, W1H 7BG.
Food Fraud 2018 reunites Food Manufacturers, Supermarkets, Processors, Suppliers, Technology Companies, and Academia from around the globe for an unmissable day of sharing best practices, lessons learned and detection & prevention methods. Food fraud is causing the food and beverage industry to lose up to £12bn annually, it’s therefore paramount that the industry connects, collaborates and eradicates fraud across the supply chain.
With the constant demand for change and the continuing challenge to meet consumer demands, improving supply chain transparency is a high priority for companies, especially in industries such as the food and beverage industry where consumers and regulators are pushing for more information on how products are made. Incorporating software technology like HorizonScan into your armoury, can ensure effective supply chain visibility together with aiding a well-developed traceability strategy allowing you, as an organisation to see where each ingredient came from with any increasing or emerging issues associated with it.
This end-to-end visibility is the key to resilient supply chains and becomes especially important when facing disruptions in the supply chain or crisis situations such as recalls, like the very current fipronil issue. This allows you as an organisations to significantly reduce supply chain risk by enabling the company to either take action to prevent disasters or to respond to disruption by activating backup plans.
Fera will also be discussing our Early Warning System (EWS) prototype, a tool demonstrating how technology is bringing to the market cost-effective proactive methods to detecting fraud.
