The Food Standards Agency's (FSA's) director of operations Andrew Rhodes will use Food Manufacture's Food safety conference in October to outline what changes are likely to inspection regimes in the food supply chain in the wake of the horsemeat scandal.

Parliament's Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (EFRA) select committee has just published a scathing report following its investigation into 'horsegate'. EFRA called for a clearer role for the FSA, which it said had failed to show clear leadership in the scandal.

The EFRA report echoed some of the criticisms highlighted by Professor Pat Troop's review into the FSA's handling of the scandal, also published last month.

Both reports identified some confusion in leadership into the investigations, which they attributed to the devolvement of some the FSA's responsibilities by the coalition government after it came to power in 2010.

The horsemeat contamination incidents highlighted serious failings in traceability and testing along the food supply chain.
