An expert has warned that the UK’s food safety body must focus on improving its intelligence and major incident protocols in order to prevent further food fraud like the horsemeat scandal.

Professor Pat Troop, who is leading a review into the Food Standard Agency’s (FSA) handling of the horsemeat incident, said the Agency had generally coped well, but improvements to intelligence and protocols were needed to safeguard the UK food supply chain in the future.

Other recommendations included a review of the FSA’s powers and clarification of government agencies’ roles in food authenticity incidents.

Professor Troop made the comments to the FSA Board in a meeting yesterday (4 June). She is due to publish her full report by the end of the month.
