Campden to support FIIN

Science and technology company Campden BRI has been chosen to provide technical and administrative support to the Food Industry Intelligence Network (FIIN).

Campden BRI will curate a database to collect anonymised (via legal host) industry data on food authenticity testing. The company will analyse the data, producing regular reports for FIIN members. Campden BRI will also be responsible for managing the FIIN membership and organising FIIN events.

FIIN was established by industry technical leaders to share intelligence on food authenticity. FIIN currently has 21 members in the UK including major retailers, manufacturers and food service companies.

“We are delighted to have Campden support FIIN,” said Helen Sisson, Group Technical Director, Greencore and Co-Chair of FIIN. “Their skills in managing the membership will allow us to meet our ambition to grow the network and make it available to any company who wishes to participate. They will also work with FIIN to continue to enhance the reporting back to the members.”

Authenticity assurance remains one of the biggest challenges currently faced by the food and drink industry,” said Martin Hall, Director of Science, Campden BRI. “FIIN is an important industry network and we are pleased to be able to support it and its members in proactively addressing the issue of food and drink fraud”.
