Welcome to the Food Authenticity Network

Food Authenticity Network

The Food Authenticity Network is a UK government initiative to help bring together those involved in food authenticity testing.  

The network, recommended by the Elliot review "Integrity and Assurance of Food Supply Networks", aims to raise awareness of the tools available to check for mislabelling and food fraud and to ensure that the UK has access to a resilient network of laboratories providing fit for purpose testing to check for food authenticity so consumers can have confidence in the food they buy.

The Network now also includes a section on Food Fraud Mitigation, in which the major global services, guidance and reports aimed at preventing food fraud have been collated. 

The Food Authenticity Network provides information related to food authenticity testing in one convenient location; the information on methods and research reports provided are outputs of government funded research and a link to the source of the information is provided in all other cases. Any view, information or advice given by members on the discussion pages are based on their own views and opinions. No responsibility can be taken for the use made of any view, information or advice given on the Food Authenticity Network.

Food Authenticity Library

A separate library for food authenticity related documents, including policy documents, case studies and available SOPs can be found at documents.foodauthenticity.uk. You can also go to our 'Research' page to find link to research reports, authenticity surveys and standard operating procedures (SOPs) on other sites.
