Food Standards Scotland targeted food surveys

We fund a programme of surveys, driving insights into the risk profile of products available in Scotland.

We also fund a programme of surveys delivered by externally commissioned contractors. The commodities selected as targets are driven by the current needs of the organisation and known gaps in the understanding of risks associated with specific foods.

The resulting data provides detailed insights into the risk profile of the products in question, and informs future risk assessment. The reports of Food Standards Scotland surveys can be found on our food safety research pages.
