Defending consumer, business and national food supply from intentional malicious attack is an essential public health and business resilience strategy that must be appropriately developed, be agile enough to address all potential threats and be built on strong knowledge of the industry sector and the mitigation strategies available. This chapter considers the present knowledge on food defence strategies, how they are developed using a risk based approach and how they can be applied within the food chain. At international, national and business level, food defence plans need to be designed, implemented and verified to ensure that they remain current and effective. There is still a significant knowledge gap when organisations are seeking to implement food defence plans and a need for greater capacity building to ensure that risk managers understand the methodological approaches that are currently being used, their value but also their limitations too.
