Food crime

Food crime is the serious fraud and related criminality in food supply chains. Examples of food crime include the use of stolen food in the supply chain, unlawful slaughter, diversion of unsafe food, adulteration, substitution or misrepresentation of food, and document fraud.

The National Food Crime Unit (NFCU) has developed a food fraud resilience self-assessment tool to support businesses in developing and implementing their counter-fraud strategy.
