Employing AI Technology to Ensure that the World Eats Safe and Healthy

October 13, 2021

Food supply chains have been a target for counterfeiters and fraudsters for decades, and with food being one of the most cross-border traded products, there is always a high risk of diversions and tampering. According to estimates by IFIS, food fraud costs the world between 10 and 15 billion dollars annually. Considering how dire the issue of food fraud is, food industry stakeholders have over the years explored the use of various methods and technologies to mitigate the situation, and artificial intelligence (AI) seems to be one of the most effective applications thus far. Artificial Intelligence enables food supply chains to operate more efficiently, ensuring that the supply chain is not only transparent but also tamper-proof.
