Scope of Global Food Certification Market Report

Certification of an entity in accordance with ISO 22000, HACCP, or any other food safety standard is one of the ways to ensure that the accredited organization has adopted a food safety management system and adhered to all processes, practices, goods, and facilities in accordance with the organization's food safety policy and ISO 22000 criteria. Food certification is available to all businesses, regardless of their size. The only criterion for obtaining a food certificate is to be a part of the food supply chain. To ensure that the food is safe for human consumption, the company must demonstrates its ability to monitor the hazards associated with food safety. The food certification will be given to the company if it is able to demonstrate such facts. If a company is accredited according to one of the food standards, it is believed that the quality and regulation of food hazards are in place, and the food generated by the food safety certified company is safe to eat. Food certification benefits the world's resource use, company earnings, higher-quality employment in the food sector, increased economic development, safer food insurance, lower rates of food borne disease, accurate documentation of techniques, practices, and methods, and the possible harmonization of national food standards. The global demand for food certification is being strengthened by the rapid development of food sectors, rising need of safe food and other factors.

During Covid-19 pandemic, the careful steps taken by governments of different nations have led the temporary suspension of organizations and temporarily paused development of new food industries and work of existing food industries which have shown some decline impact on the market growth. However, the increasing awareness towards rising need of food safety and growing number of rules and regulations regarding food certification requirement have increased demand of food certification.

News: CEA Food Safety Coalition Launched Food Safety Standard for Indoor-Grown Produce

April 29th, 2021; The CEA Food Safety Coalition (CEA FSC) has announced the introduction of the world's first food safety certification program for leafy greens grown in regulated environments (CEA). Plants are grown year-round in these operations using hydroponic, aeroponic, or aquaponic techniques, many without pesticides and safe from the elements. The CEA FSC's Leafy Green Module assesses an operation's food safety practices in areas such as water and pesticide use, site management, and hazard analysis using science-based criteria. Companies who pass the module will be allowed to use the CEA certified food safety seal on their product packaging. The software was first introduced by CEA industry members in 2019 to differentiate indoor-grown greens from those raised in fields. The food safety certification comes as the leafy greens industry tries to contain a series of E. coli outbreaks that have sickened many people and resulted in a number of deaths in recent years. Consumers can be assured of the consistency and transparency of their food through certification programs. Consumers may feel more comfortable depending on the CEA FSC program because it is maintained and implemented by a neutral third party rather than the brand's own statements about its goods. The norm also provides an incentive for the burgeoning number of indoor farming businesses to set them apart.

Increasing Concern among Consumers Regarding Food Quality and Safety and Growing Number of Cases of Foodborne Diseases are Driving the Market Growth

The major factor driving the growth of global food certification market is increasing concerns among consumers regarding the food quality and safety in recent years. Foodborne disease is becoming more common, and international food trade is being disrupted by frequent disagreements over food safety and quality requirements. Consumers are concerned about various aspects of food safety, such as sanitation, safeness, freshness, assertiveness, and others. Food safety is becoming more critical as food and eating habits change, mass catering establishments become more common, and food supply becomes more global. For instance; according to Journal of Pharmacognosy and Phytochemistry, in 2018, respondents' information on food safety criteria was collected using a standardized and pre-tested interview schedule. The majority of customers (51.50 percent) reported shelf life as the most important safety metric. Consumers measured the freshness of the product by its nutritional content (43.00 percent), while expired foods (44.50 percent) were classified as the most harmful foods. International organizations like the Codex Alimentarius Commission will help with identifying the problems and developing rational standards.

In addition, increasing cases of foodborne diseases is also fostering the market growth. Bacteria, viruses, fungi, or chemical compounds enter the body by infected food or water and cause foodborne illnesses, which are normally contagious or harmful in nature. Food processors and handlers bear a larger share of the responsibility for ensuring food safety as a result of these challenges. Because of the speed and scope of product delivery, local events can easily escalate into international crises. Thus, the food certification is necessary to ensure food safety. Product certification verifies the food's quality and safety by analyzing a range of factors. For instance; according to WHO, more than 200 diseases, ranging from diarrhea to cancer, are caused by contaminated food containing harmful bacteria, viruses, parasites, or chemical substances., Every year, an estimated 600 million people almost one out of every ten people on the planet become sick after consuming contaminated food, with 420000 deaths, resulting in the loss of 33 million healthy life. Diarrheal diseases are the most common illnesses caused by infected food, with 550 million people becoming ill and 230000 people dying each year.

However, numerous food laws and unawareness of people regarding food certification may hamper the market growth of food certification. In spite of that, growing awareness regarding the importance of food certification may create more opportunities for the further growth of the market.

North America is Expected to Dominate the Global Food Certification Market

The Global Food Certification Market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific Latin America and Middle East & Africa. North America is expected to dominate the global food certification market within the forecast period. The growing food sectors and increased consumption of prepared food, increased rules and regulations towards food safety in the region, growing number of cases of food disease cases are some of the major factors driving the demand for food certification in this region. For instances; according to Journal of Sustainability, North America and Europe account for 90% of global retail sales of organic foods and beverages; however, exporting countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America are becoming more relevant. According to FAO, in terms of the global distribution of total food insecure (moderate or severe) people, Northern America and Europe accounts for 88 million of the world's 2 billion food insecure people. According to International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, food cooked outside accounted for more than half of overall food spending in the United States in 2018.

Europe is expected to witness a significant growth rate in global food certification market. Strict rules and regulations in European countries may drive the market growth of food certifications. For instance; according to European Union food system, because of the establishment of EU food law following the 1990s bovine spongiform encephalopathy ('mad cow' disease) crisis, EU consumer protection laws have one of the highest standards of protection in the world, including for food safety. Furthermore, the EU has established regulatory mechanisms for food information (such as food labeling rules and the quality scheme), which provide consumers and producers with a high level of assurance. By controlling those externalities of food production, EU environmental policy is linked to the food system.
