With uprising foodborne illness due to Listeria, E. Colli, the food testing market of US has been vastly expanding and is estimated to reach US$ 4.4 Billion by 2017. The countries’ food producers have adopted the use of high end technological food testing programs for minimizing the risk from contamination. In addition to this, these producers are also using the “rapid test methods” as a way to check the level of adulteration in food items. Policy decisions such as Food Modernization Act are being taken up to shift focus towards prevention. On the other hand Europe, one of the largest importers of food, has been restricting itself with traditional testing technologies. In comparison, developing nations like India and China are going through a transformation phase, backed by increased spending from the government.
