Profit Protection Future Forum

A new way of thinking

About the Profit Protection Future Forum

The Profit Protection Future Forum was formed in 2015 and is led by Australasian retailers who wanted to encourage collaboration and best practice in loss prevention. To this day the PPFF is the only not-for-profit organisation in Australia focused purely on helping Loss Prevention teams.


From the outset, the PPFF had a goal to position itself differently. Retail LP leaders donated their time towards the goal of encouraging industry networking and collaboration because shoplifters will steal from EVERY store, regardless of whether it’s a supermarket, pharmacy or apparel store. While retailers may compete with each other for shopper dollars, they are united in wanting to fight the dishonest customer. 


Watch this space for our plans for 2019 which include two initiatives that will revolutionise the LP industry in Australia and New Zealand.

Our Steering Committee

The Profit Protection Future Forum Steering Committee consists of loss prevention leaders who donate their time and expertise towards Australia and New Zealand's only not-for-profit loss prevention Forum with a shared goal of promoting collaboration and partnership in the LP industry.
