Food Certification Market

Market Overview:

Food certification is a guarantee that food will not harm consumers after consumption. Food safety hazards include chemical or physical agents in food, biological or food conditions that can have adverse health effects. Food certification helps restaurants, cafeterias and other small catering establishments to comply with food hygiene. Food certification requires that the food and beverage industry sector maintain a clean, safe and hygienic environment for the manufacture of consumables. This is a move to improve food compliance control and increase business reputation as a manufacturer of quality and safe products. Food certification can be implemented at any stage of the food supply chain, from primary production to sales. Today's food standards have gained significant traction throughout the entire supply chain of all food industries. Food certification helps industry and consumers ensure consumer confidence and safety in the quality of food. More and more consumers are aware of the quality and safety of food. Food certification ensures that food is handled, prepared and stored safely throughout the supply chain to avoid potential health risks.

As consumer awareness increases, food manufacturers must be certified by regulatory bodies. Certified food is recognized as safe for customer consumption because it undergoes various verification processes. This has increased the demand in the world market for food certification. The growth of the food certification market is accelerating with the increasing need to adopt food safety standards to avoid nutritional risks and reduce the number of deaths and illnesses from foodborne illness. Regulatory interventions are expected to affect the food certification industry in the future. Increased government-imposed regulations, a wide range of industry standards, and certification requirements are expected to drive market growth. More severe penalties for non-compliant parties can encourage companies to invest to meet certification. Growing concerns related to food poisoning have led to an increase in consumer demand for healthy foods. Strict regulations and a focus on good manufacturing practices are other factors that are supposed to drive the growth of the global Food Certification market during the outlook period. Changes in consumption patterns, increased demand for convenient foods, increased availability of contaminated foods, demand for fresh fruits and vegetables, meat and poultry products, and increased food trade are key factors driving the growth of the global food certification market.

Increasing disposable income in Muslim-based countries like the Middle East is expected to drive the adoption of Halal certification. Growing consumer concerns about meat consumption are supposed to increase demand for certified halal meat products. Factors influencing the growth of the world market are the rise in prevalent foodborne illnesses, increased health awareness among people, and changes in consumption patterns. Strict regulations and standardization of various food and beverage processes drive the growth of food certification. The growing demand for food and beverage products is also one of the main reasons influencing the growth of this market. Increased government regulation, brand interest, and awareness of the quality of healthy and hygienic foods strengthen the global food certification market. The industry is accelerating even further as consumer awareness of quality food increases along with the rise in foodborne illness and contamination. The food certification market is expected to grow in the forecast period due to factors such as the growth of international food trade and the adoption of certification programs by companies to gain consumer confidence and increase the value of the brand. Nonetheless, emerging SMEs present significant opportunities for the growth of the Food Certification market during the forecast period.


The high cost of internal inspection and audit programs is not profitable for SMEs, and the complexity associated with the certification process is a factor that is expected to hamper the global food certification market growth. As impurities in food and food ingredients increase, the number of false labeling, food fraud cases and certifications has increased. While most food fraud incidents do not pose a public health risk, most food fraud involves the replacement of expensive ingredients with lower quality substitutes. If no specific incident is found, there is a growing concern about fraud. Furthermore, consumer demand for safe food is constantly increasing. As a result, as the number of national standards for food safety management increases, the need to harmonize these food safety standards increases and confusion has arisen. Industry experts have proposed unified and harmonized food safety standards to make food safety standards more efficient and reduce the diversity of food laws.

Food Certification Market Segmentation Analysis:

By type, free-from certification is supposed to record the fastest growth in the food certification business over the outlook period. The growing consumer propensity for natural and organic products is an important factor that is expected to drive the growth of the free-from certification market in the food and beverage industry.

By application, the meat, poultry and seafood segment is likely to dominate the food certification market during the outlook period. As the demand for processed meat products increases, so does the case of meat parus. The amount of fruit or defective products is increasing day by day around the world, leading to many health problems that lead to an increase in the certification of meat.

By risk category, the high-risk segment is expected to grow during the envisioned period. Food safety concerns exist due to the huge population consuming these high-risk foods. Therefore, strict regulatory standards are maintained during the processing, storage and transportation of these products.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Food Certification Market:

The coronavirus pandemic is having a huge impact on the food certification market. Protective measures such as tariffs and trade barriers can cause food shortages and increase the value of the product. Product shortages and supply chain disruptions are likely to have a combined impact on market performance in the short term. Some countries are restricting exports due to the coronavirus outbreak, which will further transform the demand for certified food. The economic consequences of social distancing rules for virus suppression also have a profound impact on the market.

Geographical Segmentation Analysis:

  • North America - the United States and Canada
  • Europe - United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, Italy, and France
  • The Asia Pacific - India, Japan, China, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia
  • Latin America  - Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, and Rest of LATAM
  • The Middle East and Africa - Africa and Middle East (Saudi Arabia, UAE, Lebanon, Jordan, Cyprus)

Regional Analysis:

The North American market held the highest share in terms of income in global food certification business, as the incidence of food poisoning among people increased and health awareness increased along with consumer concerns related to contaminated food in the countries of this locale. The European market held the second-highest share in terms of revenue, as government regulations increased and countries in the region increased awareness of ready-to-eat foods. The Asia Pacific market is supposed to experience significant growth in the global food certification market during the foreseen period.
