Regardless of the annual business value of over $50 billion dollars, food fraud has been increasingly rising due to the complexity of the global trade system in the food market (Source: 1). As long there is a profit being made in between, the risk of falsification in the food trade market is considerable. Along with food safety issues, suppliers’ responsibility for the impact is remarkable, and any disruption or fake report can negatively affect the entire food industry.
The recently released data conducted by some of the European food safety authorities regarding the inspection of border checks in the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, and France shows that around 20% of transportations did not meet the hygiene rules at all. Also, more than 50% of the seafood products in France were officially recognized as a food fraud suspect due to inconsistency with hygienic rules. This led to 112 reports and destruction of around 18 tons of seized food (Source:2)
