About the Event
Food fraud is the act of purposely altering, misrepresenting, mislabeling, substituting or tampering with any food product at any point along the farm–to–table food supply–chain. Fraud can occur in the raw material, in an ingredient, in the final product or in the food’s packaging.
Food fraud is the intentional substitution, dilution or addition to a raw material or food product, or misrepresentation of the material or product for financial gain by increasing its apparent value or reducing its cost of production.
