GFSI Releases Food Fraud Position Paper

The Global Food Safety Initiative is proud to release a paper on the position of the GFSI on Food Fraud mitigation. This work has been led by the GFSI Guidance Document Working Group* with the Food Fraud Think Tank**, convened to further advance the food fraud mitigation topic.

In line with the GFSI’s mission statement, the additional requirements and food fraud definition ensure a focus on food safety, rather than other factors such as commercial gain. The requirements specify that companies perform a food fraud vulnerability assessment and to have a food fraud vulnerability control plan in place to mitigate the identified vulnerabilities. 

In order to ensure transparency, the GFSI Board believes that the mitigation of food fraud is an integral part of a company's food safety management system, and has therefore decided to include new requirements specific to food fraud mitigation in the next full revision of the GFSI Guidance Document 7th Edition which will be released in early 2016.  GFSI commits to working in close co-operation with food safety management scheme owners and companies to ensure the risk to public health is appropriately managed and controlled until this revision is fully completed.
