Food Fraud & Authenticity Testing
To protect our customers in the food industry from fraud and brand damage, Mérieux NutriSciences offers advanced methods of food authenticity testing.
Food fraud is the deliberate production and or commercialization of non-compliant food for financial gain. Food frauds jeopardize product authenticity, cause economic damage, and can pose a risk to consumer health. Food adulteration has become such a substantial topic worldwide that fraud risk monitoring and food fraud vulnerability assessment are required by most important international standards such as BRC, IFS, or FSSC.
Our Food Fraud & Authenticity Testing Services
Every food fraud risk needs to be carefully evaluated on a case-by-case basis considering the product, the specific food chain, the supplier, the historical data and the location where the production takes place. That is why proper contextualization is necessary to frame a fraud risk and ultimately design preventive measures to mitigate it.
Mérieux NutriSciences supports manufacturing companies in the prevention and reduction of food frauds along the food supply chain. Through analytical and digital services, we help you protect your products against illegal and unintentional food adulteration.
Tackling Food fraud with the right solutions
Food fraud is estimated to cost the global food industry US$30 to $40 billion every year (John Spink, 2014). These numbers reveal that fraudulent adulteration in food is one of the top risks for manufacturers. Quality assurance professionals must implement continuous food fraud mitigation strategies to avoid costly food recalls.
