The practice is known to happen in many border areas of the country – but it’s a particular problem in Ticino. 

It’s when hungry customers in Switzerland get a pizza delivered from a restaurant in a neighboring country. 

Although its not just pizzas. In Ticino, it can also be kebabs and sushi. 

Customs officials say it’s a growing trend and point out its against the law as the food should be taxed.
