Whitepaper: Gelatine Species Determination – to aid labelling claims
Now more than ever, there is a growing demand for highly accurate labelling in the food and pharmaceutical industries. Events such as the horsemeat scandal of 2013 have severely dented public confidence with consumer trust in the food industry having plummeted by a quarter* since the news broke.
The correct identification of the species origin of animal products used in food, pharmaceuticals and animal feed is of particular importance given consumer interest in traceability and also the religious and ethical concerns for consumers who wish to avoid certain products.Food manufacturers and their supply chains must now focus on restoring this confidence.
They must answer the market’s ever growing appetite for transparency, and enable customers to make informed and responsible choices about the food and drink they purchase.
