Farmers angry over 'fake' Italian food
Text size Aa Aa

Farmers in Italy have called for a clampdown on counterfeit Italian food products.

Several items were shown at an agricultural forum on Friday at Villa d’Este on lake Como including cheese, salami and even tomatoes with fake ‘Made in Italy’ labels.

They say it’s now it is possible to find ‘Italian’ cheese produced in Belarus and Milan Salami made in Switzerland.

Officials say the market for false Italian food increased recent because of an embargo by Russia.
