Cheese is the most stolen food in the world.
The Center for Retail Research in Britain found that shoplifting, especially of food and grocery products, had risen in the past six months. And after crunching the numbers they found that cheese is the most frequently stolen food item in the world. According to their data, an astonishing 4% of the world’s cheese ends up stolen, which is high enough to have it pegged as a “high-risk” food for retailers.
Now for those who don’t think cheese is the greatest food on the planet may be surprised to learn that the dairy product is stolen even more often than alcohol or junk food.
