Welcome to the Food Authenticity Network

Food Authenticity Network

The Food Authenticity Network is a Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) 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.

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.
