A loose supply chain management makes a supplement or food company an easier target for food fraud, according to Doug Moyer, researcher and professor at Michigan State University’s Food Fraud Initiative, who spoke at the Collegiate and Professionals Sports Dietitians Association (CPSDA) annual conference in May.
Food fraud goes beyond adulteration to include counterfeiting, theft and tampering; and a company could be held responsible if its products are subject to fraud. That is why the supply chain from raw materials to manufacturing and packaging needs to be tightly controlled, according to Moyer.
