Report food crime

Last updated: 12 August 2019

There are a number of different things that count as food crime. This could include:

  • selling counterfeit products, like fake alcohol
  • falsely using another business's name to sell food and drink
  • deliberately writing the wrong country of origin on a product
  • substituting cheap ingredients for more expensive ones (like saying a product contains wild salmon when it's actually farmed salmon)

Crimestoppers runs a telephone hotline and an online form which you can use if you want to report food crime.

Visit the Food Standards Scotland website for more information on what food crime is and how to report it.
