Food supply chains are more and more under pressure, shortage of raw materials, packaging materials, and now adays also containers and vessels. To fulfil the demand of the customer, suppliers can step into short cuts. The current Covid situation makes the supply chain more fragile, less transparent and sensitive for fraud as on site controls and audits are not always possible. Bringing the uncertainty to the surface, quality, purchasing and logistic organizations need to work close together to assure the food safety and preventing food fraud in the chain. In my presentation I will show some challenges, solutions and new way of working to assure that we still have the right assurance.
