The workshop is a structured, education-focused program that provides attendees with introduction and instruction on a Food Fraud Vulnerability Assessment. This is the first step to developing a Food Fraud Prevention Plan. This workshop is a deeper and broader dive into the GFSI/ SSAFE Food Fraud Vulnerability Assessment, which is complementary to the MSU Quantifying Food Risk graduate course and supports the MSU Food Fraud Business graduate course focus on policy and strategy. Several real-world applications and problem-solving exercises are included that provide students with an effective framework for addressing their organization’s product protection needs.
The workshop is led by Dr. Doug Moyer, Researcher for the Food Fraud Initiative and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Public Health, College of Human Medicine, MSU. Dr. Moyer’s 2013 MSU Packaging PhD Dissertation was “The Influences of Organizational Behavior on Corporate Packaging Decision Makers for Durable (Repairable) Goods Producers.” Before returning to academia he worked for 25 years at Ford Motor Company in a wide range of positions including Six Sigma, quality management, and as the director of North American packaging. Dr. Moyer received the 45th Packaging PhD on the planet.
