MSU’s Food Fraud Initiative is an interdisciplinary research, education, and outreach organization. We focus on all types of fraud that can contribute to public health and economic vulnerabilities and threats. These include adulteration, misbranding, tampering, overruns or licensee fraud, theft, diversion, simulation, and counterfeiting.
Our work is accomplished through a collaboration between stakeholders from across industry, agencies, associations and other academics. Through the support of public-private partnerships, our mission is to reduce the extremely interdisciplinary and complex food supply chain vulnerability.
This initiative is based on a wide range of research, education, and outreach activities led by Dr. John Spink. This site showcases his work as well as that of a wide range of co-authors and co-researchers who have contributed greatly to different aspects of Food Fraud.
