Curb the Growing Cases of Food Fraud with a Multi-Disciplinary Approach

No-one likes to be cheated, and certainly not when it comes to what we eat.

DURHAM, N.C., April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Food fraud is a growing concern in the United States. With increase in international incidences like melamine-adulterated infant formula in China and European beef adulterated with horse meat; these instances can no longer be thought of as being remote due to globalized food supply chains. Food Fraud puts whole industries, brands, and public health at risk, and these risks increases because of a general lack of awareness and understanding. To fight food fraud effectively, it is important to bring to light the major factors responsible for the vulnerability of organisations dealing with food chain. The professionals in these disciplines (supply chain managers, packaging scientist) need to apply their expertise to address the perpetrators who are motivated by economic gain. A multi-disciplinary approach is required to understand the problem including how packaging science, supply chain management, and crime science can contribute to solutions.
