Food pathogen testing helps in monitoring the presence of any life threatening bacteria or microbes in food. The food pathogen testing is a crucial process in food industry as there are about 31 known viruses and bacteria that can cause harmful foodborne diseases. This method is employed in every step of food production to ensure food safety. The rise in safety concerns and regulations due to increasing number of cases of food poisoning drives the growth of the market. Also, advancements in various food pathogen testing methods such as polymerase chain reaction and immunomagnetic separation and limited detection time favors the adoption of food pathogen testing among food industry. The rising phenomenon of globalization is having a major impact on food systems across the world. The practices that are designed to meet the global trade demands can amplify food safety problems. The ever increasing pressure to churn out more food products has resulted in processes that compromise the existing food safety measures. Intensified food production, use of hormones and antimicrobials for promoting growth, and poor food sanity infrastructure are the key concerns in many countries. Some trade related infectious diseases come into play while matching with the innovations that are designed to serve the diversifying global palate.
The COVID-19 outbreak was first reported in Wuhan (China) in December 2019, and since then, it has spread at a fast pace globally. Lockdowns, travel bans, and business shutdown measures implemented to mitigate the spread of infection have led to the limitations on the supplies of food & beverages products. This represents a significant loss for food pathogen testing companies.
SGS SA, Bureau Veritas, Intertek Group Plc, Eurofins Scientific, Mérieux NutriSciences., ifp Institut für Produktqualität GmbH, ALS Limited, AsureQuality, Microbac Laboratories, and FoodChain ID Group Inc are among the well-established players in the global food pathogen testing market.
