Date : 27th November 2020

This conference will have presentations from various National and International experts/ regulators/Industry leaders. The purpose of authenticity testing is to assure the true state of food. According to the International Food Authenticity Assurance Organization (FAAO), “food authenticity is the process of irrefutably proving that a food or food ingredient is in its original, genuine, verifiable and intended form as declared and represented”. Authenticity testing is utilized to prove that the contents of food products are authentic and the way they are presented is correct and accurate. Although authenticity testing is not a new concept, it has received considerable attention in recent years due to increasing numbers of food fraud incidents reported worldwide.

The concept of using authenticity testing to identify economically motivated adulterations is shifting the fight against food fraud from reaction after they happen, to early detection and prevention, thus allowing the food industry to have control over the issue of food safety. Research and technological advances are revolutionizing the process of food authenticity testing, although they cannot be used to identify all types of food fraud. With the complexity of the global market and the addition of e-commerce, the safety risks of food fraud are likely to increase. Therefore, there is always a need for sensitive and accurate authenticity methods to prevent food fraud from happening and help the industry to keep pace with new fraud tricks that may threaten the safety of the food supply chain.

The Food Authenticity and Fraud program (FAF), launched by AOAC INTERNATIONAL aims to identify and develop standard reference methods (with targeted as well as non-targeted approaches) for quality control and compliance of food materials. Several research institutions and networks across the EU are collaborating to define terminologies related to food authenticity, in order to harmonize the use of methodologies and approaches to authenticity testing, including the Codex Alimentarius.
