The government response sets out the actions being taken to implement recommendations from the Elliott review final report. The Elliott review addresses the current weaknesses of our food supply networks and suggests measures that can be taken to address them.
In response, we are:
setting up a new Food Crime Unit
ensuring we have a resilient network of food analytical laboratories to test food consistently
improving coordination across government to protect food integrity and tackle food crime
An independent report from the Authenticity Methods Working Group addresses one of the commitments in the government response relating to recommendation 4 of the Elliott Review around method standardisation for food authenticity testing.
