The report on combating fraudulent and deceptive practices in the food chain has been published

A technical report has been published by the Joint Research Center (JRC) of the European Commission on the uniform interpretation and application of provisions on official controls carried out to detect fraudulent or deceptive practices in the food chain.  

 The report, which includes the results of the studies carried out in 8 Member States between 2020-2022, includes examples of good practice and the challenges encountered in the implementation of official controls on fraud. Competent authorities of Member States are required not only to detect violations of the rules governing the agri-food chain but also to identify possible intentional violations of those rules, perpetrated through fraudulent or deceptive practices by operators for the purpose of gaining an undue advantage. In 2019, food fraud is estimated to cause an economic loss of 30 billion Euros per year.
