Food crises today have the potential to affect thousands if not millions of people across multiple territories, often with brand damaging messages being actively promoted through social and traditional media within minutes.

Food fraud is widely accepted to be a major and continuing threat to food brands. NSF has developed integrated solutions which clients can utilise to provide a holistic approach to safety culture. The NSF Food Fraud Model identifies and prioritises risk across different product categories and was developed by NSF for the UK Food Standards Agency (FSA). NSF has also developed a 7-step programme to identify sources of, and to detect and prevent fraud in your business and throughout your supply networks.
