Risks in the Food Industry

Apart from the risk from "Metrology" red-dot, green-dot on food, + weights & measurements calibration risk, that you have brought up, there are several other Food & safety risks following the "Maggi" problem, "ingredients" that is not being addressed by firms on which the state and central governments are cracking down.

The Volkswagon scandal also shows the risk that deliberate tampering of software to avoid regulation & compliance, in the FIRST place / software fraud is happening. Whistle blowing could be a solution at the coding / developer levels out of Bangalore / India within India laws, as a great deal of the worlds software is being developed in India (Bangalore especially) back-offices to out-sourced. No checks & balances & audit of the software specifications in the first place, hiding under confidentiality & trade-secrets ... is actually unfair trade practices.

The whole area of AUTOMATED controls in every industry and automation, read "software". Least understood, least controlled, least monitored.

Risks from "Healthcare", wellness products was regulated products, doctors & pharma NOT to advertise or accept gifts, the use of "bogus" pesticides in Punjab, the rise of dengue across communities are all high-risk areas where money is being spent & governments are concerned. With estimates of even 50%+ adulteration, many of the "drugs & medicines" taken in many parts of India are spurious and do nothing for you.

The FIFA scandal (and of course our BCCI). If sports doe not handle their affairs, at the grass-roots in a democratic, transparent, values-based way what is the message to children, youngsters, communities & the public? Match-fixing, corruption, paying-up is the only way? Any and all even first-level sports bodies need to be cleaned up - they need to put in "Positive Risk Practices" get a free PRP guidelines roadmap document from external consultants

Geo-political risk is another head-ache that even strong governments are not able to solve. Syria, Ukraine, China to name a few.

Companies need training, advisory, solutions & "meet-objectives" packages for all these.
