The FDF is proactively engaged with members and regulators on incident prevention and horizon scanning for emerging issues, to inform industry’s own activity to maintain the assurance and integrity of its products and supply chains.

We maintain an open dialogue with UK regulators and food chain partners to ensure members are alert to potential food safety or authenticity issues and can respond swiftly to emerging risks to protect consumers.

The FDF also supports the development and sharing of best practice, aimed at ensuring that robust systems are in place to deal effectively with an incident when it occurs.
