SSAFE is proud to announce that, in collaboration with Dr. John Spink from Michigan State University, it has launched two training modules to help companies better understand food fraud (video 1) and how to use the SSAFE Food Fraud Vulnerability Assessment (FFVA) tool.
As food fraud continues to be a key risk for the food industry, continuous efforts are being made across the food sector to help combat fraudulent activities and protect consumers. To support this effort SSAFE launched a free Food Fraud Vulnerability (FFVA) tool in 2016 in 10 languages for food companies to conduct their own assessment. The tool has been a great success with 29,502 downloads of the tool to date. In addition, there are more than 7,500 completed online assessments from over 70 countries.
Even though many companies are already using the tool, we have received many questions about food fraud generally and the FFVA tool specifically. These videos have been designed as an introduction to both. We hope you enjoy them.
The journey to world-class food safety practices starts with building a strong food safety culture within a food business. Leaders set the example by demonstrating the right behaviors and empowering their employees.
