Have you assessed the key risks and opportunities for food fraud in your supply chain? Are you monitoring changes in real time to ingredients, processes or supply chains that may constitute a risk? Does your existing supplier assurance system limit opportunities for food fraud and mitigate risk of authenticity issues?

A documented food fraud vulnerability assessment (FFVA) and mitigation plan are required for compliance with the GFSI-benchmarked standards’ requirements. Addressing all types of food fraud and hazards that require a preventive control is required under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Learn how to conduct an FFVA and develop mitigation strategies to protect against food fraud in this workshop.

You will receive NSF’s Food Fraud Vulnerability Assessment template and instruction on how to use this tool in your own organization.

Registration includes a complimentary one-hour food fraud vulnerability assessment with NSF's consulting team.

This program is also offered through our partners, Alberta Food Processors Association and Perennia (Nova Scotia). Please visit their websites to see course dates and availability.
