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 a member of fiin shows Brakes’ commitment to remaining at the forefront of product integrity. fiin provides insight and intelligence from across the industry, which we use to enhance our own product assurance plans. Through working with other progressive food businesses and contributing to the information being shared with the regulatory authorities, we can help to promote trust and confidence in our supply chains to our customers and the UK consumer.
