The research unit looked at the issue of the impact of food adulteration at a national and international level. In particular it examined the economic and public health effects of food adulteration, providing some particularly significant examples. They also identified the major sources of information on food adulteration, emphasising the underlying criticalities to the information available.  Finally, the limitations relating to the contrast and the awareness of food adulterations in the USA and the EU were pinpointed, focussing specifically on the United Kingdom, a country with an advanced system of monitoring for cases of food adulteration.
