Introducing the Food Forensics Risk Newsletter

Introducing the Food Forensics Risk Newsletter

Are you looking for a reliable source of information to stay ahead of potential risks and supply chain disruptions in the food industry? Look no further! Food Forensics, recognised as a Food Authenticity Network Centre of Expertise, is excited to introduce our monthly Risk Newsletter.

Designed to be read in just 20 minutes, our Risk Newsletter is a comprehensive and concise resource that will empower you to make informed decisions and proactively manage potential risks. We understand the challenges faced by businesses in horizon scanning and converting vast amounts of data into actionable insights. That's why we created this newsletter—to bridge the gap between information overload and effective risk management.

What can you expect in our Risk Newsletter?

Unlike traditional horizon scanning reports, our Risk Newsletter focuses on supply issues within key food categories such as produce, proteins, oils and fats, and even pet food. We delve into various factors, including weather impacts, supply and demand imbalances, price differentials, disease outbreaks, and supply chain disruptions. By highlighting these potential risks, we help you identify early warning signs and enable you to take proactive measures to mitigate them.

In addition, our "In The News" section captures reported incidents related to food authenticity and fraud, keeping you updated on emerging trends and potential threats. We go beyond authenticity risk alone and also cover key areas such as modern slavery, environmental and sustainability concerns, food safety summaries, and food authenticity trends. These insights are powered by our proprietary online searchable database tool, the "Knowledge Base," ensuring you have access to the most up-to-date and relevant information.

Become a subscriber today and unlock the benefits!

For a limited time, we are offering subscription to the Risk Newsletter at a highly affordable price. UK subscribers can access the newsletter for only £99 per year, while international subscribers can join for just £120 per year. This investment in knowledge is a small price to pay compared to the potential risks and costs associated with supply chain disruptions or authenticity issues.

We are so confident in the value our Risk Newsletter provides that we invite you to experience it firsthand. Contact Barry Hilton at, and he will be delighted to share a complementary copy with you. Discover how our Risk Newsletter can enhance your risk management plans and help safeguard your business against potential threats.
