The provision of safe and authentic European food produced to defined quality standards is a key expectation of consumers as well as a key selling point for the European agri-food economy. European food is recognized globally for its high standards of production, labeling and safety. FoodIntegrity, a €12M European project, aims to fulfill that need. The 5 year project started in January 2014 and aims to provide Europe with a state of the art and integrated capability for detecting fraud and assuring the integrity of the food chain, develop a sustainable body of expertise that can inform high level stakeholder platforms on food fraud/authenticity issues and priorities, and establish an international network of expertise that will inform regulatory and industry stakeholders about food authenticity issues and inform Horizon 2020 on future research needs.
