Food Forensics offers a service to enhance traceability in the food and beverage sectors. We use Stable Isotope Ratio Analysis (SIRA) to give an “environmental fingerprint”. Food Forensics interprets these fingerprints to verify production details about the products such as geographical origin and method of production.
An FSA report suggested that up to 10% of the food on our shelves is fraudulent, equating to around £7 billion per annum. Time and time again traceability systems alone fail. SIRA environmental fingerprinting at last provides a robust tool to screen for product authenticity.
