    MSU’s Food Fraud Initiative, the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) and the GMA Science Education Foundation (SEF) have partnered to conduct an online survey to gather important new information on Food Fraud, Food Integrity, Food Authenticity, Food Fraud, and Economically Motivated Adulteration. This survey is a follow-up from the 2010 GMA Consumer Product Fraud report. The results will be used in part to support the work of stakeholders addressing this issue, including the new Codex Alimentarius (CODEX) Electronic Working Group (EWG) reviewing Food Fraud, Food Authenticity, and Food Integrity.

    The survey will be conducted in two phases.  Phase I will report preliminary findings from survey responses collected from Tuesday, September 21 to Wednesday, October 13. Phase II will be a final report with information gathered through Tuesday, October 31, 2017.  The average time to complete the survey is  22 minutes.
