Do you suspect a business of dishonesty involving food, drink or animal feed? The NEW Food Crime Confidential is a reporting facility where anyone with suspicions about food crime can report them safely and in confidence, over the phone or through email.
Food Crime Confidential is overseen by the Food Standards Agency’s National Food Crime Unit (NFCU), which works with partners to protect consumers from serious criminal activity that impacts on the safety or authenticity of the food and drink they consume.
The facility is particularly targeted at those working in or around the UK food industry. Employees of the hospitality industry are well-placed to provide information which could help the NFCU identify and pursue offenders.
The National Food Crime Unit would like to hear from anyone who has suspicions:
- that food or drink contains things which it shouldn’t
- that methods used in your workplace for producing, processing, storing, labelling or transporting food do not seem quite right
- that an item of food or drink says it is of a certain quality or from a specific place or region, but it doesn’t appear to be.
