Food defense is the act of putting appropriate measures in place to reduce the chances of a food supply from becoming intentionally contaminated with one or more agents or materials (chemical, biological or other) that may not be naturally occurring, or routinely tested for.

SGS Academy’s new Food Defense training course provides the latest information on food defense guidelines and legal requirements alongside the GFSI standard expectations.

Delivered by qualified experts, this course will help learners to:

  • Understand the importance of food defense strategy
  • Identify risks from potential attackers within the food sector,
  • Understand supply chain mapping and authenticity assessment,
  • Develop and implement food defense plans

Upon completion of this course, learners will be able to confidently use key food defense definitions, and understand the GFSI Food Fraud prevention approach and food threat categorization.
