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 library for food authenticity related documents is being developed. In the mean time, go to 'Research' to find links, where available, to research reports, authenticity surveys and standard operating procedures (SOPs). Further categories of documents will be added e.g. case studies and lots more.
