About the FoodIntegrity project

Combating food fraud by supplying methods and tools

Bringing together 60 participants from 18 European countries in addition to China and Argentina, Food Integrity’s key focus has been to consolidate, harmonise and mobilise the European capability on food authentication to ensure consumer confidence and protect European added value.

The €12M five-year project (2014 – 2018) has contributed to reduce the current barriers to data sharing and utilisation that is crucial to combating food fraud by supplying methods and tools that address both enforcement and industry needs.

With 21 work packages, the project has not only been seeking to enhance early warning capabilities, but also, working with industry, developing methods, systems and processes to assure the quality, authenticity and safety of the food chain.
