Description

Join us in celebrating our 15th annual symposium!

Food Fraud: Do you know what you’re eating?

Consumers don’t knowingly choose food products that are diluted, substituted, mislabelled or misrepresented. No one wants to be deceived, especially when the deception is a risk to our health. Food fraud is generally defined as the misrepresentation or adulteration of a food product for economic gain and efforts to expose it date back several centuries. As global connectivity increases, so does the demand for authenticity from the agri-food supply chain, which is why food fraud is gaining attention as an emerging international issue. Some of the most famous cases include the 2008 melamine scandal in China and the 2013 horse meat scandal in Europe. Industry fines and research investigations reveal that food fraud is also taking place in Ontario.

This year’s Symposium examines the impact, challenges and risks associated with food fraud as well as the various measures being used to address it, trying to ensure that “cheaters will never prosper”.

Objective of the annual Guelph Food Safety Seminars Symposium

To bring together people from the Guelph Food Safety Network and others who are interested in the risk management approach to food quality and safety, in order to learn more about these topics, discuss issues of common interest and broaden networks.

Event information will be posted on the Department of Food Science, University of Guelph website: https://www.uoguelph.ca/foodscience/
