Come and join us at Food Fraud 2017, taking place 3 May 2017 in Manchester, you can find us at Stand Number 14.
2017 is being heralded as the 'year of transparency' in attempt to satisfy customers who want to know more about the content of their food and its origins. In latter months of 2016 there was an increase in recalls from sunflower seeds to flour to powdered milk. It is predicted that this rise in recalls is not expected to slow down with many experts predicting a growth in scale and frequency for 2017. This will make it even more pressing to ensure you have the right tools to hand, working with the right partners to enable you and your business to prevent issues before they happen, impacting the bottom line.

The system can also aid with the data needed to complete your vulnerability assessments for BRC in the prevention of food fraud from adulteration, substitution, fraudulent documentation to expiry date changes, production in unapproved premises, production with inspection and unsuitable means of transport.
