New resource on impact of Ukraine war on food supply chain

The Food Authenticity Network has published a new online portal for professionals working in the food and drink supply chain, with information related to potential or actual disruption to supply chain resulting from the war in Ukraine.

The Food Authenticity Network was set up in July 2015 by LGC with funding from Defra as a direct response to Recommendation 4 of the Elliott Review into the Integrity and Assurance of Food Supply, which highlighted the need for standardised testing approaches.

The Food Authenticity Steering Group aims to identify emerging issues in food authenticity and gaps in science and testing methodology that will help to protect consumers by addressing food fraud and misleading food labelling activity.

The ASG sets priorities for the UK government’s food authenticity programme based on horizon scanning, market intelligence and assessment of the science capability and evidence base.
