GLOBEFISH - Information and Analysis on World Fish Trade

Webinar on Ensuring seafood authenticity - 26 November

18/11/2020

Webinar registration 

Seafood is among the most internationally traded food commodities worldwide and it is one of the food groups most likely to face challenges around authenticity. This is due to the complex nature of the globalized seafood supply chain and the economic motivation to provide lower cost products from fisheries and aquaculture. The cost of food fraud to the overall global food industry is estimated at around 30 billion euro, which threatens the sustainability of supply chains.

To ensure sustainability and to meet the current demands of the global seafood marketing chain to combat fraud, an effective science-based traceability system must be able to identify species and the geographical origin, and to distinguish between wild-capture and farmed products. The system must also be able to identify fresh and frozen products, and the many different forms of processed seafood that are currently traded.

The objective of the webinar is to introduce participants to the importance of fraud in the seafood sector, to the regulatory requirements for combatting seafood fraud and to present current European initiatives that are tackling this issue.

Date and time: 26 November, 10am CET
