Food Fraud

a Joint Nordic Threat Assessment


Publish date
Food Fraud has become an important issue throughout the EU and EEA following the horsemeat scandal in 2013. Like other European markets, the Nordic market is exposed to criminal actors who intentionally commit criminal offences to secure financial gain. The Nordic working group initially chose a limited number of topics that we all considered important to address. The topics were raw materials of animal origin, fish and seafood, declaration of Nordic origin and declaration of organic production.The project developed an in-house model for collecting information about the possible threats. The results provide an understanding of the extent of the threats that are being examined.
