Event Overview
Tackling food fraud is a global problem requiring a global effort. Fit-for-purpose analytical methods, both targeted and non-targeted, are required to identify fraud candidates and characterize specific markers for confirmation, enabling a legal route to address and overcome these food fraud issues.

Chromatography and mass spectrometry techniques fill the analytical toolbox required for food authenticity testing, and together with global collaboration for method development, protocol building and solution validation offer a platform for understanding and preventing current and future food crimes. Register for this on-demand forum to hear leading industry experts discuss these issues.

Watch the presentation to learn:

  • What analytical techniques are useful in confirming authenticity?
  • Why mass spectrometry is such a promising tool for food authenticity?
  • What are the challenges with mass spectrometry that prevents its widespread and routine use for food authenticity currently?
  • What innovations or advances in mass spectrometry would aid its wider adoption in food authenticity testing?
