Supply chain food crime & fraud: a systematic literature review of food criminality

Liam Fassam, Samir Dani, Mils Hills

Research output: Contribution to ConferencePaper

Abstract

There is a growing awareness by businesses, consumers and Governments of the need to understand and police food crime and fraud - underpinned by an extensive evidence of the scale of the challenge of food fraud and food crime. To achieve a cross-functional appreciation of these topics will require a multi-disciplinary approach and a process of collating and mapping information to facilitate support to both academics and practitioners. This paper uses the systematic literature review process (Denyer and Tranfield, 2006) to navigate through and provide a gap analysis from multidisciplinary sources of literature with the keywords ‘food fraud’ and ‘food crime’. The focus of the paper is on considering the variables known to affect these two domains and subsequently the information available to help understand and secure the food supply chain. The analysis of the literature found demonstrates divergence in views across different research areas (particularly in terms of articles versus peer reviewed research), and in doing so identifies areas for future research.
