Food fraud poses a significant threat to the food industry. Food fraud incidents have industry-wide impacts and change consumer behavior toward all brands. Verifying food authenticity is an opportunity to deter the consumer tendency to distrust food claims.

Authentication solutions must be dynamic and include food fraud intelligence and appropriate verification methods. Additionally, communicating authentication programs to the consumer serves as message carrier of brand integrity and protection. Food authentication programs differ in size, content, operational details and purpose.

Therefore, representative case studies can help understanding the details and the basic inputs needed to set up such a program. From designing the framework and setting the aims, to technical and analytical know-how, up to dissemination possibilities, all components compose a total authentication solution for each case.
