What Is The Most Shop-Lifted Food?

May 4, 2012 in Daily Bulletin

Ben Popken discussed the results of the WorldWide Shrinkage Survey. Some highlights include:

  • Cheese is the most shop-lifted food in the world.
  • However a lot of the cheese is likely being stolen for resale to other places such as restaurants and markets.
  • Cheese is easy to steal because it comes in small packages. It is also difficult to trace once you remove the label.
  • Other popular items for shop lifters include meat, candy, and infant formula.
