In the food industry, not everything is as it seems. What seems to be safe foods could be counterfeit. We are generally trusting eaters; we believe what the menu says, and we believe what is given to us is authentic. But labels can lie, and packaging can be misleading. Food fraud not only robs you of the value that you have paid for, it could also be hazardous to your health.
