With the rise of globalization and complex distribution systems, there has been an increase in food product counterfeiting. Food adulteration, which is mostly economically motivated, can have serious impacts and even detrimental consequences on the health of its consumers. The international community uses a collective approach to cope with food fraud in which all stakeholders in the food supply chain are certified and qualified (excluding those who do not meet the applicable standards), and foods are monitored in real-time. However, there is a need for a plan of action that takes the perspectives of the food industry and consumers into account. Available technologies for the detection of food fraud are mainly based on profiling and fingerprinting methods. In this section, we deal with future research areas, not only related to food adulterers but also to food safety and climate change, and the need to develop interdisciplinary approaches to contemporary problems.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
