Food fraud data based on the European Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF)

  • Wouter Hoenderdaal (Creator)



The data contains information on food fraud. A total of 1634 food fraud notifications for the period 2000-2020 were downloaded from the Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF) database. Each record contains detailed information on the kind of notification and the products and countries involved. Based on the description in each notification we added a variable "food fraud type" (i.e. six different types of food fraud). This dataset can be used to analyze food fraud, and a subset was used to train a Bayesian network model to predict food fraud type.
