Tell AIC Background
Following the 2013 meat adulteration scandal (“Horsegate”) the feed/ food supply chain has been under increased scrutiny, and pressure is being placed on all industries to proactively ensure the integrity and authenticity of their products in addition to the well understood responsibilities around safety.
The Elliott Review, which was commissioned by the UK government following the scandal, made a number of recommendations including increased transparency of “whistle blowing” procedures. Professor Elliott also suggested in his report that anyone who became aware of fraud or other illegal activity but failed to inform regulators or industry bodies should be considered complicit.
