Food News


THIS SECTION IS FOR NEWS AND INTERESTING STORIES RELATED TO FOOD, NUTRITION AND FOOD PROCESSING. THEY ARE NOT NECESSARILY RELATED TO KOSHER BUT MAY BE OF INTEREST TO THE KOSHER CONSUMER, MANUFACTURER OR MASHGIACH.

The following news is from the FoodSafetyNews on August 20, 2015.

A presentation by food fraud investigator Mitchell Weinberg at the International Association for Food Protection (IAFP) meeting in Portland, OR stated that food fraud is a bigger problem than many realise. "Around the world, food fraud is an epidemic. In every single country where food is produced or grown, food fraud is occurring,” Food Fraud affects everything from seafood to milk, spices and even food coloring — anything with “even a moderate economic value".
"In many cases, U.S. companies should be physically inspecting their food suppliers or finding some other method to monitor their activities to make sure that no fraud is taking place." "No other efforts can deter misbehavior like the threat of losing business."
