Breakthrough Technologies Enabling Food Safety (Technical Insights)

Breakthrough Technologies Enabling Food Safety (Technical Insights)

The market for technologies enabling food safety has gained momentum in recent years mainly due to the recent food product recalls. These recalls are mainly due to contamination by microorganisms and other toxins that can cause foodborne illnesses and contribute significantly to the cost of healthcare. The need for food safety, therefore, drives new growth opportunities in different segments of the food industry value chain, including production, processing, packing, distribution/transportation, storage, and preparation.

This research service titled, Breakthrough Technologies Enabling Food Safety, focuses on the recent innovations and opportunities in the food safety technology market worldwide across the entire food supply value chain. This research service summarizes the various technologies and the emerging opportunities enabling food safety of different types of foods including dairy, eggs, meat, poultry, seafood, ready to eat foods, frozen foods and so on. This includes both primary and supplementary technologies such as technologies for pathogen detection in foods at various level of food processing steps, intervention technologies for microbial reduction, packaging technologies, robotics and automation, technologies with electronic traceability, sensor technologies, and mobile applications enabling food safety.

The focus areas of the research include opportunity analysis of several emerging technologies and an assessment of their market impact. This research service also offers a roadmap highlighting the adoption for technologies that enable food safety
