Eurofins and U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention Announce Collaboration to Tackle Food Fraud
Mar 22 17
Eurofins Scientific announced that its Group Competence Centre for Food Authenticity has signed a collaboration agreement with the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention. The agreement was first disclosed at the 2017 Global Food Safety Conference earlier this month in Houston, TX. Eurofins and USP will combine expertise to assist the food sector with specific tools for combatting food fraud. The agreement includes several areas of cooperation, including exploration of new analytical testing methods, training and consulting to help the food sector assess the vulnerability of supply chains, and other services based on global analytical and food fraud data to inform stakeholders of emerging issues. Eurofins is renowned for its unparalleled expertise in the development of analytical methods for food fraud detection, as well as for providing certification audits according to Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) schemes (i.e. BRC, IFS, SQF) and Eurofins-designed standards (Non-GMO Identity Preservation) for food safety management systems, traceability, and identity preservation within food supply chains. Eurofins remains at the forefront of technology with continuous innovation, and has previously participated in the Food Fraud Think Tank, a public-private partnership encouraged by the GFSI, and whose work has led to recommendations to include food fraud mitigation in existing food safety management systems of the food industry. USPs Food Fraud Database is a comprehensive source of information on food fraud risk for thousands of ingredients. The database can be used to identify which ingredients have a known history of adulterations including incident reports, inference reports, surveillance records, and analytical methods. USP searches, compiles, and performs quality control checks on data gathered daily from scientific literature, media publications, regulatory and judicial records and trade associations from around the globe. USPs Food Fraud Mitigation Guidance provides a framework to assess ingredient vulnerability, the associated risk, and develop food fraud mitigation plans.
