Decernis has announced its monthly column Food Fraud Quick Bites and a Resource Center focus on Food Fraud with partner Food Safety Tech. The monthly column is written by Decernis Senior Manager of Scientific Affairs, Karen Everstine, Ph.D., who is also a member of the FST Advisory Board. It provides commentary on recent incidents in food fraud, published papers and approaches to evaluating risk.
“Reports are likely just a fraction of the true occurrence of food fraud. A holistic assessment of food fraud vulnerability should take into account a wide variety of sources of information including media reports,” stated Everstine in a company press release. Dr. Ruud Overbeek, Chief of Strategy and Business Development at Decernis LLC stated, “The Food Fraud Database benefits all involved in the industry including retailers, manufacturers, and suppliers. The Food Fraud Quick Bites will provide an immediate update and perspective on recent happenings.”
