The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Office of the Inspector General reported recently that they have failed to review required documents for products labeled as “organic”. This finding and report means a lack of controls at U.S. borders increases the likelihood that nonorganic products are entering the U.S. under “organic” labels.
Why you should attend :
Overall food fraud losses are estimated at between $10 and $15 billion annually on a world-wide basis. Today thousands of U.S. companies buy, process and sell organic products.
With the continuous expansion of the organic industry, pricing variations and food fraud, companies need to protect the consumer, their industry and brand identity investment.
