Packaging fraud occurs when intentional substitution, mislabelling, adulteration, or counterfeiting of products, raw materials, specifications, or wrapping occurs for economic gain.
Our talk will discuss packaging fraud examples, why they are increasing, what to do about them, and how an IFS PACsecure auditor views a company’s fraud vulnerability assessment and mitigation plan.
