Food safety testing signifies testing of food products to assure the absence of contaminants that are responsible for foodborne illness, toxicity or poisoning. Food safety testing is essential to prevent consumption of contaminated food that has been responsible for outbreaks of foodborne illnesses. Contamination of food can occur due to exposure to contaminated equipments or raw materials, contaminated water, improper handling, and inefficient treatment. In North America, food safety regulatory bodies such as FDA, CFIA, GFSI, USDA, etc. have been implementing food safety regulations to manufacture safe food using Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), Good Agriculture Practices (GAP), and Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) systems. The regulations specify testing of food materials and food manufacturing processes at every stage, to prevent food contamination and outbreaks of foodborne poisoning. Implementation of these food safety regulations has been driving the food safety testing market.

This report explicitly describes the North American food safety testing market in terms of contaminants such as pathogens, toxins, pesticides, genetically modified organisms and other contaminants such as food allergens, chemical residues, etc. in three countries such as U.S., Canada and Mexico. Safety testing of food products such as meat & poultry products, dairy products, processed foods, fruits & vegetables, and other foods such as cereals, food additives, etc. using technologies such as traditional & rapid testing methods have been described in the report. The report also specifies food safety contaminant testing market based on pathogen subtypes, in various food types, and geographies.The North American food safety testing market is projected to grow from $3,707.7 million in 2012 to $5,640.1 million by 2018.
