Food fraud is a $50 billion annual industry that doesn’t just stop at sushi restaurants, “The investigation of fish mislabelling in Canada started with fallout from a horse meat scandal in the EU, where ground horse meat was being labeled as beef and pork. I think it’s easy to do in the fish and seafood industry because you rarely see the entire organism (most people buy fish fillets, or pre-sliced fish steaks, or eat it in restaurants, etc.), but I think it absolutely happens in other industries. Olive oil, maple syrup, and teas (as three examples) are often cited as targets for mislabelling and food fraud,” explained Dr. McDonald.
