Food Fraud Vulnerability Assessment Workshop

Equip delegates with the tools to quantify, detect and help prevent fraud, while building an anti-fraud business culture.

Have you assessed the key risks and opportunities for food fraud in your supply chain? Are you monitoring changes in real time to ingredients, processes or supply chains that may constitute a risk? Does your existing supplier assurance system limit opportunities for food fraud and mitigate risk of authenticity issues?

A documented food fraud vulnerability assessment (FFVA) and mitigation plan are required for compliance with the GFSI-benchmarked standards’ requirements. Addressing all types of food fraud and hazards that require a preventive control is required under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Learn how to conduct an FFVA and develop mitigation strategies to protect against food fraud in this virtual instructor-led workshop.

You will receive NSF’s Food Fraud Vulnerability Assessment template and instruction on how to use this tool in your own organization.
