Effect of Covid-19 Outbreak on Food Supply

News blogs on this website indicate that fraud is likely to increase at least in the short to medium term because of the effects on the food supply not only in the UK but globally caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. The risk increases when a particular food becomes in short supply due to lack of manpower to harvest or process it, disruption to transport and storage in the Covid-19 fallout.

If you prefer to remain anonymous that perfectly understandable.
