Question for written answer E-003157-17
to the Commission
Rule 130
Brian Crowley (ECR)

 Subject:  Tackling food fraud in Europe
 Answer in writing 

Operation OPSON, the joint Europol-INTERPOL operation targeting counterfeit and substandard food and drink, has resulted in the seizure of 9 800 tonnes, over 26.4 million litres and 13 million units/items worth an estimated EUR 230 million of potentially harmful food and beverages. In Ireland, 1 096 items of counterfeit food were seized in total. The sheer volume of the products seized shows that criminals are continuing to put human health and the security of the food supply chain at risk.

1. In addition to the actions of INTERPOL, Europol and national Food Safety Authorities, what initiatives can be implemented at EU level to tackle the continuing problem of food fraud?

2. Could the Commission provide an update on the recent activities of the Food Fraud Network and its work to improve the capacity of competent authorities to detect and prevent food fraud?
