Global Food Safety Testing Market, By Contaminant (Pathogen, Genetically modified organism (GMO), Ch

Published Date: | Report Code : FA1958509


Food Safety Testing relates to inspecting food products for bacteria, chemicals and other hazardous materials that cause disease. It is usually aimed at three main contaminants of food, namely pathogens, chemicals, and GMOs.

Food fraud occurs when food is intentionally modified with the intention of deceiving customers for economic gains. The Agency for Food Standards (FSA) specifies two primary kinds of food fraud, namely the sale of unsuitable and possibly dangerous and intentional food misdescription.

Implementation of multiple food safety laws, especially in developed economies, drives the development of the worldwide market for food safety testing. Recycling of animal by-products, sale of product's previous use-by date, the inclusion of damaging ingredients, and unsafe methods of food handling are some of the main operations of food fraud. Eating contaminated foods, including toxic chemicals and radioactive materials, leads to foodborne disease, which can even lead to death.

Implementing stringent laws by many major food safety organizations, such as the Food Standards Agency, the European Food Safety Authority, India's Food Safety, and Standards Authority, and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency is anticipated to drive development in the worldwide food safety testing industry to avoid consumer ill health and food fraud.
