Fighting Food Fraud: Lessons from Honey, Seafood and Beyond
As food supply chains become increasingly complex and globally distributed, the ability to provide consumers with transparency of the product journey becomes extraordinarily difficult. This is particularly true if these supply chains rely on outdated methods to record and share critical information about the production, manufacturing, and distribution processes. Without the ability to know where a product came from there is no way to validate claims made about the origin of that product. Studies have shown that nearly 40% of all seafood in the United States was mislabeled and around one-third of all globally traded honey is adulterated or fake. Not only do such misrepresentations present a major risk to customers, but they also strain legitimate producers whose businesses rely on being able to offer real products at a price point that reflects genuine ingredients.
