Nutrition Resource Centre (NRC) - Fake Food: What can we do about food fraud?

Topics: Food Location: General, Canada

Food fraud is a growing concern among Canadians. From mislabelled produce and oils, to false health claims, and products containing unlisted ingredients, adulterated foods erode the public's confidence in the Canadian food supply and can pose significant risks to people's health, especially those with food intolerances.

How severe is this issue in Canada? And what can we do about it? Are there any health risks associated with food fraud today?

In this webinar, join Dr. Sylvain Charlebois, Dean of the Faculty of Management and Professor in the Faculty of Agriculture at Dalhousie University, as he describes food fraud in Canada, its socioeconomic and health impacts, future research directions, and potential steps towards addressing this important public health problem. Dr. Charlebois is a leading food fraud researcher who's carried out studies on the public perception of food fraud in Canada.
