Some edible species are becoming increasingly difficult to supply. The depletion of rare species has resulted in fluctuating prices. (The raw material prices vary without concern with food specifications).
Constant pressure on prices increase the substitution and error risks, the extensive media coverage only exacerbates the problem.
It is essential that your supply conforms to the labeling or the specifications.
