Food Cargo Theft: Prevention and Response (109856 Module 1)

The US is ‘High Risk’ on the Global Food Cargo Theft Risk Scale. Are you prepared to Respond to the Threat and prevent it from Happening in Your Organization?

Food is the number one cargo stolen throughout the world and it is on the rise.  The United States is rated as “High Risk” on a global food cargo theft risk scale.  As food prices go up, food is easily disposed of on the open market where it is later sold at regular retail prices.  Both the FDA and the FBI propose a number of strategies designed to prevent food cargo theft, but the complexity of the problem and the sophistication of the thieves are on an all-time increase.

Stolen food cannot be resold and recall procedures that are initiated generally impact large segments of the food industry on a scale similar to food safety recalls.  In this training by expert speaker Dr. John M.
