Impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on Food Fraud [Webinar]

This webinar will aim to critically assess the concerns that have been raised around food fraud as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak and what additional measures have been implemented in order to ensure our global food supply is not at risk.

As many businesses and entire countries are forced to go into lockdown globally due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the food supply chain becomes more vulnerable to threats. With oversight from authorities being minimised or even stopped in certain instances and companies lowering sourcing criteria as they become more desperate for certain ingredients, the supply chain is weakened.

During times of weakness, opportunities for fraudsters and criminals increase significantly and it therefore remains of great importance that companies maintain vigilance. Technology today has certainly played a massive role in combating food fraud, especially in the more developed markets, and with the strict regulations put in place, the likelihood of food fraud being committed is greatly reduced.

This webinar will aim to critically assess the concerns that have been raised around food fraud as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak and what additional measures have been implemented in order to ensure our global food supply is not at risk. We will further explore the importance of risk assessments and reflect upon how the future of food fraud prevention may look like as a result of this novel corona virus.
