Falsely labelled as Italian

This article was originally published in Foodnews

ITALIAN anti-fraud officers have confiscated tomato concentrate worth around EUR400 000 from a processor based in Angri, Campania, found to have been labelling the product as 'produced in Italy' when it was in fact re-processed Chinese tomato paste.Emma Slawinski writes: La Repubblica reported that the cans of double concentrate seized contained re-processed Chinese tomato paste to which water and salt had been added. The investigating unit maintained that the company had only carried out a partial processing of the product and it could not be considered to originate in Italy. Charges have been pressed against the head of the company, named in other media reports as AR Industrie Alimentari, who is accused of "selling industrial products with false labelling".
