Happy 5th Birthday to us!

We were set-up on 14 July 2015 by the UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs as a direct response to the review conducted by Prof. Chris Elliott to act as a one-stop-shop for all things food authenticity testing related. Today, we have over 1,830 members from 78 countries / territories around the world and in 2019, over 12,000 users accessed the website. We've also added sources of good practice information on food fraud mitigation to our scope recognising that it's best to try to prevent #foodfraud from happening in the first place.

So a BIG thank you to Defra, Food Standards AgencyFood Standards Scotland and Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS)), our Supporters (McCormick & CompanyLGC StandardsInstitute of Food Science and TechnologyFood Industry Intelligence Network (fiin) and SSAFE), my colleagues Mark WoolfeStephen EllisonMichael WalkerFelicia Golden & Gary Bird, our Advisory Board (Sterling CrewLiz MoranBarbara HirstSophie RollinsonLucy FosterBhavna Parmar, Kasia Kazimierczak, Kerina Cheesman, Elizabeth Andoh-KessonFranz UlberthRachel Ward & John W Spink) and all our Members and Users for your continued support.
