White paper released: thinking like a criminal

QADEX have developed online systems that bring every aspect of food safety, quality management systems, compliance, customers and new product development together in one simple dashboard

QADEX announce the launch of a highly sensitive white paper for food safety professionals that will alert and alarm managers to the shadowy world of the criminal fraudster, and deliver sound advice enabling them to protect their business from criminals.

It sets out the complexities of how intentional fraud in the food chain can appear invisible to the eye of its unknowing perpetrators, impossible to evidence by the legal system and unobserved by the audit process.

The purpose is to alert both auditors and innocent managers to awareness of the possibilities that exist for unscrupulous CEOs to reap the financial benefits of an undetected operation designed to commit fraudulent activities without the knowledge or complicit agreement of the bulk of its employees and managers.

The process is similar to the well-known Sherlock Holmes method of hiding within plain sight and replicates some of the activities discovered deep within some of the world's banking systems that were blown out of the water with the last financial crisis. This very sensitive white paper shows how it might happen within the food supply chain.

But, owing to the sensitive nature of the content, we will only be able to release it to those working in verified businesses within food retail, manufacturing, processing, foodservice, wholesale and distribution.
