The worlds focus on climate change has resulted in unique challenges for large and small companies alike; to enable them to produce food in a sustainable way as well as tackling the challenges of food fraud . The raw materials used in food sold by retailers around the world all need assurance that their products are safe, of good quality, ethically sourced, and meet the requirements of food law.
