Food Fraud, an organised crime?

A movie by Bénédicte Delfaut, 2021

Documentary, 70'

Around the world a new type of crime is being carried out and it goes right to the heart of what we eat. Food fraud is a highly lucrative criminal enterprise that affects a huge range of products.
Criminal syndicates are infiltrating the global food suply chain, undermining the ability of consumers to trust what is on the label and what ends up on their plate.
Scams range from the intentional mislabelling of inferior products in order to pass them off as premium items, to the substitution of one food stuff for something else entirely.
Regulators are struggling to keep up with this burgeoning underground business which risks undermining the reputation of whole industries.
In this fascinating film, international food investigators show the many and varied scams they have uncovered and who is behind them.
From the olive groves of Italy to the fish markets of France and the abattoirs of Poland, this film takes you on a culinary journey of a very different kind.
