Food fraud is a complex issue and tackling it requires a collaborative approach by all stakeholders in the supply chain continuum.
During this one-hour webinar attendees will:
- understand types of food fraud and their impact on Canadians;
- identify roles and responsibilities of various stakeholders in combatting food fraud;
- learn about CFIA's approach to combat food fraud in Canada; and
- discuss collaboration opportunities to mitigate the risk of food fraud and misrepresentation in the Canadian supply chain.
