Today Decernis announced that it has acquired USP’s Food Fraud Database. The database was launched in 2012 to assist food manufacturers, retailers and other stakeholders make informed decisions of ingredient vulnerability, food fraud and economically motivated adulteration. It contains information about thousands of ingredients from scientific literature, media publications, regulatory reports, judicial records and trade associations worldwide. Users can use the database to search for information and generate reports.
Decernis and USP will collaborate during the transition process to ensure a seamless integration. Like USP, Decernis is committed to the mission of product safety and we believe the Food Fraud Database has significant runway for expansion through Decernis’ existing platforms, allowing us to scale this important capability and help combat intentional food adulteration,” said Pat Waldo, Decernis CEO.
