Most stolen food in the world

Cheese is the most stolen food in the world, according to a new market research.

The UK's Center for Retail Research has found that the cheese and meat aisles are popular stops for thieves in grocery stores around the world with retailers reporting four per cent theft in cheese every year.

The 2011 study traces retail theft in 43 countries across more than 250,000 stores and reports that retailers suffered millions of dollars of losses in food products. - source yahoo.com.au

Hmm, why would people steal from supermarket?


  1. Why? Because you're hungry. You want to feed your kids and hope you don't get caught. Very sad but true. Must be hard to have hungry mouths and not enough to fee them and there's a supermarket with every food imaginable. *shrugs

    Of course, there are those that do it because they can and they're perfectly capable of buying it.

    Oh, I've been catching up on the blog rounds today as well. Of late, Monday-Wednesdays have become extremely busy. I'm rarely home. Unfortunately, this will be the pattern until mid December, sigh.

    I like your cartoon. Very apt.
