Webinar: The Sins of Seafood: 23 January 2018 - 3PM BST

With seafood and aquaculture being the most valuable and highest traded commodity in the world, it’s an industry which inevitably is the most susceptible to fraud. With one in five out of 25,000 samples tested worldwide being mislabelled, fraud comes in many forms and is often referred to as the ‘Sins of Seafood’, following the Elliott Report of 2014.


Fraud negatively impacts food safety, quality, sustainability and our environment. Throughout this webinar, Professor Chris Elliott will explore these sins and evaluate how analytical science tries to detect, and ultimately deter, these frauds from occurring.


Keynote speaker: Professor Chris Elliott, Professor of Food Safety and Director of the Institute for Global Food Security, Queen’s University Belfast
