The Sins of Seafood
About this webinar
With seafood and aquaculture being the most valuable and highest traded commodity in the world, it’s an industry which inevitably is the most susceptible to fraud. With one in five out of 25,000 samples tested worldwide being mislabelled, fraud comes in many forms and is often referred to as the ‘Sins of Seafood’, following the Elliott Report of 2014.
Fraud negatively impacts food safety, quality, sustainability and our environment. Throughout this webinar, Professor Chris Elliott will explore these sins and evaluate how analytical science tries to detect, and ultimately deter, these frauds from occurring.
