Italian and Serbian national authorities unraveled a transnational fraud in the production and trade of falsely labelled organic food and beverages made from decomposed apples, contaminated with toxic chemical substances, and refined with water and sugars.
In a successful action coordinated by Eurojust, 9 suspects of an organised crime group were arrested and 1.411 tonnes of adulterated product with an estimated value of almost €5 million were seized.
