Say goodbye to costly risk assessment processes. Achieve robust food fraud risk assessments with minimal training and maximum assurance

It’s quick and easy to get started, here’s how it works

  1. Answer a series of relevant, guided questions about each ingredient, covering the likelihood, detectability and profitability of potential fraud.

  2. The Food Fraud Scorecard tool then automatically calculates and quantifies the degree of risk associated with each ingredient.

  3. You will immediately receive a PDF report for each ingredient, summarising the key fraud risks with an indication of how well each is currently being managed.

  4. You can rank all of the raw material assessment scores in order of risk. It also calculates and includes a score based on the severity of these risks, and indicates potential areas for improvement.

Explore step-by-step how the Food Fraud Scorecard functions, from inputting ingredient data to generating comprehensive reports.

Developed for the food industry by ICS technical experts

This tool was developed by ICS staff and contractors. It was based on a food fraud risk assessment method developed by ICS staff member Clare Winkel in 2016.

Clare Winkel BSc, MBA, has been working with risk assessments for food fraud since 2008. This method has been used by companies in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA, Trinidad, Jamaica and a number of South Pacific countries across many industry sectors.

ICS staff have used this method to successfully undertake approximately 800 raw material food fraud assessments across the following industry sectors: bakery, spices, dry goods, seafood, fresh produce, beverages, nuts and confectionary.

From 2006 to 2008 Clare Winkel worked on the European Union research project (STREPS no FP6- 518451) with Wageningen University (Netherlands), TNO Quality of Life (Netherlands), Federal Research Institute for Nutrition & Food (Germany) and University College Dublin (Ireland): Developing a Stakeholders Guide on the vulnerability of food & feed chains to dangerous agents & substances: the key activity included the development of a new method of risk assessment to enable the assessment of the supply chain of farmed Atlantic Salmon for vulnerabilities to food safety contaminants, including assessment of traceability & documentation failure & failure to detect contaminants. All of which are conditions that can lead to food fraud. This project successfully identified a number of food fraud activities during the project.

Additionally, Clare has worked in the food processing industry since 1987 and from 2004 has been an auditor of GFSI, retailer & fast-food chains in 14 countries. This has enabled her to have a deep understanding of many food industry supply chains and how and where fraud can occur.
