Industry professionals will share best practice in preventing food fraud and to assess the most cutting-edge testing technology in the sector.

The conference will combine a series of sessions including case studies, panel discussions, spotlight focuses and presentations, creating a well-rounded and highly informative conference. With ample time for questions and discussions, the food fraud programme will enable attendees to gain a full insight into the issues currently relating to food fraud and plans to address these.

Speaking Organisations include:

  • National Food Crime Unit, Food Standards Agency
