Abstract: A team led by a scientist at the Norwegian Institute of Food, Fisheries and Aquaculture Research (Nofima) has created a standard that seeks to define various forms of food fraud. The new document aims to tackle food fraud as a whole, but also set standards for sub-categories of the activity such as mislabelling and adulteration, says Nofima senior scientist and project coordinator Petter Olsen.“It ’s not always easy to distinguish between similar concepts, but incorrect use of words can have significant consequences ”, he says.
