Food certification Market Dynamics:

Driver: Strict food industry standards and certification requirements

The regulatory interventions are projected to affect the food certification industry in the coming years. An increase in government-enforced regulations, extensive industry standards, and certification requirements are projected to drive the growth of the market. The enforcement of stronger penalties against non-compliant parties is projected to encourage the companies to invest in certification compliance. These factors are projected to impact the growth of the market positively.

Restraints: Lack of harmonization in food certification standards and guidelines across the globe

There has been a continuous increase in consumer demand for safe food products. This has led to the development of numerous food safety standards. As a result, the increase in the number of national standards for food safety management has led to confusion and a rise in the need for harmonization of these food safety standards. Industrial experts have often suggested uniform and harmonized food safety standards to reduce the multiplicity of food laws to make them more efficient.

Opportunities Growth of Halal, organic, and free-from food certifications

The increase in disposable income in Muslim-based countries, such as the Middle East, is projected to drive the adoption of halal certifications. As consumer concerns regarding meat consumption are rising, the demand for halal-certified meat products is projected to increase. The increase in demand for organic products is projected to offer high-value opportunities for the growth of the food certification market. The US, Germany, France, China, Canada, Italy, and the UK are some of the largest markets for organic food.

Challenges: Instances of false labeling certifications among companies

The increase in adulteration of food and food ingredients has led to a rise in the number of food fraud cases, false labeling, and certifications. Although most food fraud cases do not pose a public health risk, most food frauds involve the substitution of a high-value ingredient with a low-quality alternative. The concerns regarding frauds are increasing as certain incidents go undetected. According to Food Navigator Asia, many factories in Malaysia were found to be producing food products with fake halal logos.
