Position paper on food fraud

Food fraud is of increasing concern to society including the food industry. As such the membership of FoodDrinkEurope considers it important to clarify its position on the issue. Food fraud is an unacceptable, criminal, activity and the food industry wishes to distance itself from any such activity. FoodDrinkEurope members are committed to supporting government efforts to fight against food fraud for the protection of consumers and robust food supply chains. In parallel, FoodDrinkEurope appeals to its members to continuously strengthen their food safety/quality management systems in order to mitigate the impact of food fraud.
