Food Fraud: Definition

Food fraud is the deliberate and intentional substitution, addition, tampering or misrepresentation of food products or food ingredients. It is also when food products are mislabelled. Food fraud is becoming more and more prominent worldwide and results in billions of economic loss and brand reputation damages. It can sometimes even impact consumer health as when melamine has been added to baby milk to claim higher protein content in the product.

The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) has released new benchmarking requirements stating that adulteration and food fraud mitigation are integral parts of food safety management systems.
