If you think there’s a problem with food you’ve been offered, or if you work within the food and drink sector and want to report a concern, you can either:
call the Scottish Food Crime Hotline on 0800 028 7926
Any information you give will be treated in confidence and you won’t have to give your name if you don’t want to.
The Hotline and webform are both hosted by Crimestoppers, a widely respected and independent charitable organisation which for many years has been the link between members of the public and industry wishing to anonymously report their concerns to law enforcement agencies. The information you provide, no matter how insignificant you may believe it to be, could be key to a new or on going investigation. Your information will be analysed, researched and actioned accordingly.
Food crime and consumer safety issues affect you and those closest to you. Take the time to report it by providing as much detail as you can so we can target those involved.
If you think you’ve bought or eaten food or drink that breaks the law, or if you work in the food and drink industry and think there’s a problem, you can report it anonymously.
