Food Defense

Food defense is putting measures in place that reduce the chances of the food supply from becoming intentionally contaminated by people who want to do us harm. A terrorist’s goal might be to kill people, disrupt our economy, or ruin your business. Intentional acts generally occur infrequently, can be difficult to detect, and are hard to predict. Food defense is not the same as food safety.
