A long-awaited report into the food industry which was launched after last year's horsemeat scandal is due to be published later this morning.
Professor Chris Elliot's report into food fraud is expected to warn that the industry is susceptible to criminal activity.
In an interim report published last December, Elliot urged the creation of a specialist unit to tackle food fraud and protect consumers.
The report was initially due out in the spring, but was pushed back due to the European elections.
The Department of Environment and Rural Affairs (Defra) commissioned the report after horsemeat was found in a number of food products labelled as beef.
