LRQA Vice President, Strategic Marketing Food and Beverage, Vincent Doumeizel responds to key industry food fraud report

According to a report by PKF Littlejohn and the Centre for Counter Fraud Studies (CCFS), food fraud could be costing UK companies £11.2bn a year.

The report is based upon research which has reviewed data from 73 listed food and drink companies with total annual sales of more than £200bn.

Of the report, Vincent Doumeizel said ‘Factors such as price and scarcity of some of our key resources due to climate change, compounded with many elements of food production being converted into biofuel means that the supply chain has become increasingly complex and the food industry recognises the need to mitigate risks associated with potential food fraud.”
