Expansions, Acquisitions, Agreements, Partnerships, Accreditations, and New Service Launches to Meet the Growing Demand for Food Certification Market

The food certification market is estimated to be valued at USD 8.45 Billion in 2017, and is projected to reach USD 11.45 Billion at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2017 to 2022. This market is driven by the increasing consumer awareness about certified food products and rising prevalence of foodborne illnesses. Food manufacturers have been gaining consumer trust by voluntary adoption of certification programs. They are also inclined to enhancing the diversified product portfolio and brand value. The growth of the processed meat industry has been driving the food certification market.

The key market players adopted strategies such as expansions, acquisitions, agreements, partnerships, accreditations, and new service launches to meet the growing demand for food certifications.

The active players in the food certification market include Dekra (Germany), Intertek (UK), TÜV SÜD (Germany), SGS (Switzerland), DNV (Norway), Bureau Veritas (France), Eurofins (Luxembourg), Lloyd’s Register (UK), AsureQuality (New Zealand), Kiwa Sverige (Sweden), ALS Limited (Australia), and UL LLC (US).

DEKRA is one of the leading organizations in the testing & certification market.

Certification services are offered throughout the product lifecycle. DEKRA food certifications comply with international safety standards. It offers certifications according to the international standards as well as first- and second-party audits. The company’s product testing & certification service unit expanded the range of services that it offers by setting up laboratories in Europe and Asia, owing to the growing awareness of food quality testing & certification. In November 2014, DEKRA acquired RCI Safety, a global safety consulting and solutions firm headquartered in the US.

Bureau Veritas is a global leader providing testing, inspection, and certification to meet the growing challenges of quality, safety, environmental protection, and social responsibility. Bureau Veritas has 900 accreditations and delegations. It is certified ISO 9001 and was the first to have its network accredited with ISO 17020.
