Ramada Apollo Center, Staalmeesterslaan 410, 1057 PH Amsterdam


Economic food fraud is a rising concern in all parts of the world. Melamine in milk, beef being replace by horse meat, sugar water added to honey, …. A long list of scandals of food safety and hygiene has appeared in the news over the past years, all having 1 factor in common: an economic profit for the fraudster, somewhere along the supply chain. Since not all crises have a direct food safety impact, a common HACCP risk assessment cannot be used to detect risks.
In this masterclass, examples of real-life cases of food quality and safety are analyzed, and practical ways of conducting a VACCP study are thought. After this masterclass, you’ll be able to conduct your own study, and you’ll know the possible solutions when detecting high-risk raw materials & packaging materials.
