Our objective

The Food Industry Intelligence Network (fiin) was established in 2015 to help ensure the integrity of food supply chains and protect the interests of the consumer. The network addresses the recommendations of the ‘Elliott report’, which was commissioned by DEFRA, to establish a ‘safe haven’ to collect, collate, analyse and disseminate information and intelligence.

Over 50,000 authenticity tests conducted and pooled for intelligence sharing every year
Being part of the Food Industry Intelligence Network and the intelligence that ensues from this collaboration has become a key strategic asset in ABP's food defence plan. The network’s strategic importance continues to grow thanks to closer links with the competent authorities and the overall increase in membership.
