Deep Dive Interview with Dr. Sylvain Charlebois, Food Fraud in Canada, Dalhousie University
What's for dinner? Are we having sustainably caught Arctic Char from right here in Canada? Or are we easting an endangered species illegally caught from halfway around the world?
Well unless you have a DNA testing kit there's no way to know. Seafood in Canada has been shown to be labelled incorrectly 47% of the time so you really have no idea what you are actually eating. How can we help support our honest fishermen and women and stop supporting criminal fishing organizations and save our oceans?
Well tuning into today's podcast is a great place to learn from the experts who are working hard to sort this issue out!
To give us an economics point of view on food fraud we spoke with Dr. Sylvain Charlebois from the Dalhousie University Agri-Food and Analytics Lab. You may have seen him on the news whenever there is a major story about food or may have even tuned into his podcast The Food Professor Podcast. Dr. Charlebois shared many nuggets of wisdom about why food fraud is an issue everyone should be concerned about and how it impacts many sectors of the food world.
