BTJ 1/17 - A bad egg. Food supply chain safety and security

Before they land in groceries, various edible goods often have to cover many states if not even intercontinental borders. 

However, outsourcing or unbundling the production process, as well as involving third-party logistics, are all critical points with the potential to increase the risk of food contamination and spoilage, or to open backdoors for shady individuals and their fraudulent practices.

According to PwC's publication Food Fraud Vulnerability Assessment. Are you doing enough to prevent food fraud? any intentional act of deception using food for economic gain (e.g. substitution, addition, dilution, tampering with, or misrepresentation of food, food ingredients or food packaging; false or misleading statements made about a product) costs the global food industry an estimated USD 40 bln each year.
