Food Fraud Annual Report 2021 to 2022 published


Mar 13, 2023

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) published Food Fraud Annual Report 2021 to 2022. These are some highlights of that work:

  • monitoring ongoing and emerging risks, and planning mitigation activities
  • promoting awareness and educating consumers via an advertising campaign and other work
  • working with international counterparts to share relevant information and best practices
  • advancing research and method development to detect food fraud
  • targeting surveillance on higher-risk commodities and taking control actions and enforcement actions where warranted when CFIA found non-compliance

Surveillance during this period included inspecting, sampling and testing for authenticity and misrepresentation of fish, honey, meat, olive oil, other expensive oils and spices. CFIA did targeted surveillance on these commodities at different types of food establishments, including importers, domestic processors and retailers.
