Routine testing of food products is gaining prominence worldwide owing to the growing emphasis on enhancing the safety and quality of food supply to control food-borne illnesses. Geographic expansion of retail food chains has also enhanced awareness about food contamination and its consequences. Globalization, changing international food trade policies and the need to comply with various food safety regulations are also driving the demand for food safety testing.
