The food authenticity market consists of sales of food authenticity services by entities (organizations, sole traders, and partnerships) that are used to reveal the identity or purity of food and food products.Food authenticity means an accurate and appropriate representation of the food and its ingredients to the customer (whether that be another food company or the final consumer).
Food is regarded as authentic or genuine if the food or its contents match the original condition and the label information. Food authenticity enables consumers to get what they pay for and increases their overall level of trust in food.
The main types of target testing in food authenticity are meat speciation, false labeling, adulteration tests, country of origin, and aging.Meat speciation refers to the fraudulent practice of substituting or blending cheaper varieties of meat, which is unacceptable for health, religious, and economic reasons.
The different food tests include meat and meat products, dairy and dairy products, cereal, grain, and pulses, processed foods, and others. The technology involved is polymerase chain reaction-based, liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry, isotope method, immunoassay based/Elisa, and others.
North America was the largest region in the food authenticity market in 2021.Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region in the forecast period.
The regions covered in the food authenticity market report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East and Africa.
Rising food fraud is expected to propel the growth of the food authenticity market going forward.Food fraud, like food defense, falls under the umbrella of food protection.
Both can be economically driven, but the objective of food fraud is monetary gain, whereas the purpose of food defense is to do harm by any kind of intentional, malicious adulteration or economic disruption, and is often ideologically motivated.Food authenticity is a positive way of approaching the problem of food fraud.
It is a process that proves if a food or food ingredient is original or genuine and can be verified as such. For instance, in June 2022, an annual operation against food fraud coordinated by Interpol, an Austria-based intergovernmental organization, and Europol, a Netherlands-based government agency, announced that from December 2020 to June 2021, 15,451 tonnes of unlawful items worth $55 million (€53.8) million were collected across 72 countries. In comparison to the previous operation conducted by Europol, named OPSON IX, which covered the same time period from 2019 to 2020, the rise was 28% and 16%, respectively. Hence rising food fraud is driving the growth of the food authenticity market.
New product innovations are a key trend gaining popularity in the food authenticity market.Major companies operating in the food authenticity sector are focused on developing new advanced technology to gain a competitive advantage.
