The AOAC Board of Directors created a Presidential Task Force on Food Fraud to identified areas of work to standardize analytical methods to be used by food industry and regulators with a focus on non-targeted and targeted testing methods. The non-targeted methods will be used to support the authenticity of a given ingredient without targeting a specific adulterant. The targeted methods will focus on the presence of a given adulterant in an ingredient.

On March 13, 2019 during the 2019 AOAC Mid-Year meeting in Gaithersburg, MD, the AOAC Food Authenticity Program was launched with two working groups. The working groups (nontargeted & targeted) identified and prioritized commodities, along with gaps in targeted testing.
