Europe Food Safety Testing Market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period of 2018 to 2025.
Food safety testing is a critical process of monitoring and controlling the quality as well as contamination level of the food products which are either imported or exported. Food safety testing includes various procedures such as pathogen testing, allergen testing, heavy metal contaminant testing and various others. With the rise in mass food production trends, it has become a major challenge to monitor the product at each and every stage. Hence, sampling assessment and testing has emerged out as the best way to study the whole lot and take the required action. Food safety testing is not just restricted for processed and canned products but also for fresh and farm produced products, in order to certify them for risk-free consumption. This is because contaminants in the form of chemicals, pesticides and pathogens can enter the food product at any stage of its production, i.e., from farm, to processing plant and finally to the customer.
With the catastrophic outcomes as a result of food scandals, food-borne disease outbreaks and food poisoning cases, the regulatory bodies in Europe, have defined specific food safety standards on the basis of the type of food product. This has mandated the key stock holders of the food industry to pass their food through food safety assessment procedures and then sell their products. Moreover, the constantly changing lifestyle and increasing number of working class people in Europe, has inclined the food trend towards packaged and pre-processed food articles, which is a major driving factor for the growth of food safety testing industry in the very region. In addition to this, the most stringent and strict food safety standards directed by the EU, are acting as the major propelling agents for the food safety market growth. However, the lack of technical knowledge, unwillingness among food manufacturers to get their product tested and high cost of food safety testing might act as the major restraining factors, impeding the market growth pace in the near future.
