Rome, April 11 - Italian police seized over 1,500
tonnes of fake organic foodstuffs in a number of regions on
Thursday as part of a probe in which 23 people are under
investigation.
Most of the seized food was soya, corn and wheat from
Ukraine that was certified as being organic but actually had a
high content of genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
The police also confiscated 30 tonnes of Indian soya
contaminated with pesticides.
Investigators suspect that an Italian company brought the
goods into Europe through customs in Malta before transferring
them to Italy.
They believe around 10 companies were involved in the scam,
including firms from Moldavia and Ukraine, in addition to bodies
involved in the certification of organic goods in the Marche
town of Fano and the Sardinian city of Sassari.
