The GFSI Guidance Document Working Group and the Food Fraud Think Tank have released a paper on the position of the GFSI on food fraud mitigation. Companies are urged to 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.
