Consumer Demand Tied to Food Label Fraud — FoodNavigator.com

 

Consumer demand (and willingness to pay more) for organic products is opening the door to fraud:

“While the sale of fraudulent organic products is apparently relatively infrequent, a number of incidents have come to light in recent years. For instance, in May a 36m pound shipment of Ukrainian corn and soya beans was shipped to the US via Turkey. When in the US, it was attempted to pass the conventional crops off as organic – a move that would have increased their value by around €3.3m.”
