Safety and quality are two major concerns in the recent years.
The rising incidents of food-borne
illness, free global trade activity and consumer awareness has created a
need for food safety testing. Microbial
contamination, mislabeling, and adulteration have been the major causes of food
scandals globally. The usage of food testing equipment is driven by the
increasing food trade and recent food outbreaks. Active mass media coverage of
such mishaps has pressurized food manufacturers to comply with the regulatory
standards and go overboard to appease customers. The food safety equipment
market is witnessing a significant growth and offering a wide pool of
opportunities for the manufacturers. The
food testing equipment market was estimated at $2,189m in 2014 and is
projected to grow at a healthy rate in coming years.
Increasing Incidents Of Contamination
And Food Mislabeling Propel The Growth
Food safety is one of the
major issues in China after 2008 dairy products scandal where that led to death
of six infants and made approximately 300,000 sick. In July 2014, other
incident took place where expired meat was supplies in a well-known food chain
in China. One after other rising incidents of dairy and meat scandal in the
country has increased the demand for food safety testing. In 2013, the horse
meat scandal in U.K., where horse meat was found in frozen beef burgers. In
January 2015, Washington Beef LLC, (U.S.), recalled 1,620 pounds of boneless
beef trim product due to the possible E.coli
contamination. In Feb 2015, Whole foods (U.S.) recalled its packaged raw
macadamia nuts due to possible Salmonella
contamination. Apart from this the food mislabeling issues has also raised
concern for food safety. In Japan, almost 307 cases of food mislabeling were
reported in 2013.
To reduce such incidents
thorough food testing and nutritional analysis is required. Mandatory and
stringent food regulations by the government will result in high demand for
food testing equipment.
