How Does Technology Impact Food Safety And Authenticity?
Adhering to the strong consumer demand, companies invest in food safety technology and packaging to eradicate the risks related to food crises.
FREMONT, CA: Foodborne contamination and illness have often been a significant issue for the Asia Pacific food and beverage industry, particularly with such incidents rising. According to a market research agency, the global food safety testing market worth $17 billion is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 7.7 percent to touch $24 billion by 2023.
The driving factor of the growth is the enhanced need for testing, high demand for foods, globalization in the food trade, the rising number of foodborne disease outbreaks, and more contamination incidents. In addition, technology has always been one of the significant priorities of the World Health Organization in addressing food safety, and they are expected to deliver a substantial impact by 2030.
Food safety tools and technology
Several tools in the market cater to the food safety application specifically, from on-pack indicators for temperature and gas detection to the point-of-care devices that point out the actual contamination. An usually used point-of-care device is the scanner and associated technologies that are particularly important in primary food production. The advantages of these technologies come to light regarding time and cost-saving.
The importance of authentication for safety
Including the technology and tools that are particularly configured for food safety reasons, other kinds of technology that bring up a proof of authentication, like traceability and databases carrying a piece of comprehensive information, are also becoming influential within the food safety area.
Food Safety Challenges
In the case of food manufacturers in Asia, challenges such as varying regulations are to be considered when making any food safety changes, which can be a major challenge. In addition, numerous external factors need to be tackled, including the environment, authenticity, and integrity.
