Food fraud has grown rapidly due to the current conditions in the food market: complexity of the supply chains and consumer demand for high quality and authentic food. The impact of food fraud on the food industry has been evident through various incidents as well as measureable figures. Nevertheless, this was only the triggering factor that incurred a discussion which unveiled the extent of the phenomenon worldwide.

In today’s complex and global supply chains, the issue of brand reputation and brand protection has been in focus more than ever. Recent studies added further insights into what is the current trend of the changing consumer behavior due to the available knowledge and intelligence about food fraud. This change is recognized as one of the most prominent future risks for the value of brands and the integrity of the whole sector.

Economically motivated adulteration is not to be considered solely a quality assurance problem for a company, but a global influencing factor of the food market, shaping decisions, values, brand reputations and corporate strategies. In this environment, the food industry looks for new innovative ways to communicate the principles of integrity to the consumer and analytical authentication solutions have a definite role to play in this.
