Food fraud drains an estimated $30 to $40 billion every year from the global food industry. The Consumer Brands Association (CBA) claims that roughly 10% of commercially produced food and beverage products are affected by fraud.
But these figures only point to the preliminary economic expense of food fraud. There are health costs to consumers poisoned by tainted food, not to mention the cost of the reputation a brand suffers when adulteration occurs. A far-flung, global supply chain has made it increasingly difficult for manufacturers to track the origins of raw materials. It’s also made it increasingly easy for bad actors to peddle adulterated goods. This chronic threat looms larger in the dietary supplements industry, where labeling remains a significant area of concern.
