John Spink on Food Fraud Prevention 2018

MSU FF Workshop Lecture BRC v3 Evolution of Food Fraud Prevention 2018

I most certainly agree with this slide #4 since it reflects the thought that I shared in my March 2014 post about fraudsters attending conferences or courses that teach how to "catch and punish" them: "Fighting Fraud – Like Fighting Volcanic Eruptions"

Do you also know that fraudsters may even be willing to financially or otherwise support superficial anti-fraud efforts as these provide sufficient distractions, and that the distractions take the focus of industry away from doing what actually prevents them from carrying out their fraudulent activities?

Here is another fact worth considering about food fraud, fraudsters and victims: The most successful fraudulent activities in the industry are those funded and defended by the victims. The scope extends far beyond the usual list of things done directly to, or with, food.
