The workshop aims at developing consensus-based recommendations for definitions of key terms and concepts, and to outline principles and basic requirements related to food authenticity. The resulting document will provide recommendations for "best practice” underlying future communication and work related to food authenticity, and will help in ensuring the authenticity of feed- and food products. This workshop is related to the AUTHENT-NET project, short for AUTHENT-NET – Food Authenticity Research Network, a CSA action funded under H2020-SFS-2015-1.
This CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA 17369:2019) published on 2019-01-23 defines terms relating to authenticity and fraud when referring to feed and food products. All terms and definitions are in the context of the feed and food supply chains, and "feed and food" is implied whenever the term 'food' is used in this document.
