Many risk factors for food fraud have increased over the past year due to COVID response efforts. These include significant supply chain disruptions, economic impacts, and the geopolitical environment, among others. This presentation will review some of these risk factors and discuss what we know about food fraud incidence so far in 2020 based on both public data sources and industry insights. The speaker will provide an in-depth review of tools and resources for supporting and documenting food fraud mitigation plans. Finally, we will look at case studies for some high-risk commodities, including lessons learned and what the future of food fraud prevention efforts will require.
