Anti Fraud Initiative / Organic Integrity Network

The organic market grows rapidly in Europe, North America and Asia. The flow of trade is becoming more and more international and there is a shortage in the supply of various commodities. This leads to a situation where those who do not take the organic requirements seriously are tempted to enter the lucrative market.

Even if the organic market has currently the best quality management system of the whole food market, fraud is still an issue.

The main aim of the Anti Fraud Initiative is to improve cross border communication among inspection and certification bodies, trade companies, label organisations and authorities to strenghten organic integrity.
