Food fraud encompasses a wide range of deliberate acts. Most common among these are the addition of non-authentic substances, and the removal or replacement of authentic substances without the purchaser’s knowledge.

The driving force behind these acts is usually economic gain. Knowing the current meta trends affecting your materials, ingredients and their associated risks is an essential part of the vulnerability assessment.

SGS, the testing, inspection, and certification company, is hosting a webinar on ‘Expanding from food fraud surveillance to the detection of unknown risks in the supply chain’ on 1 September 2021 at 2030 hrs IST. 

The objective of this webinar (45-minute presentation/15-minute Q&A) is to discuss the two levels of thinking required when establishing a successful food fraud program in your organization. The first is done by determining vulnerabilities in your supply chain on the categories, products, and materials you work with. Known, high-risk products need to be monitored continually for concerns of fraud. However, there is another equally important dimension. How do you go about detecting emerging, unknown risks in a proactive manner? Instead of responding when something occurs, how can you be prepared before it even happens? Both aspects are important and will be addressed in this interactive session.

The webinar will update on global food fraud trends, help attendees to effectively monitor the known risks with the food fraud incident capabilities of SGS Digicomply Ultimate, and explain how to find early warning signals and unknown supply chain risks through predictive analytics.

The speakers for the webinar are Nicola Colombo, Global head of SGS Digicomply, SGS; and David Psomeadis, head of Laboratory/Business Development manager, Imprint Analytics.

The webinar is aimed at all food quality, safety, supply chain, and regulatory compliance professionals.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
