DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ktkf99/food_micro) has announced the addition of the "Food Micro - Eighth Edition: Microbiology Testing in the Global Food Industry" report to their offering.
This report tracks and compares microbiology test volumes, market values and methods used by food producers around the world, based on detailed interviews with more than 450 food production facilities in North America, Europe and Asia, including China and India.
According to Food Micro-8, the global food industry will conduct 966.5 million microbiology tests in 2013 to ensure the safety of food products and detect dangerous pathogens in food. The report provides detailed breakdowns by microorganisms, food segments (meat, dairy, fruit/vegetable and processed foods) and geographic regions, and summarizes key trends and concerns in microbiology testing in food production facilities around the world.
This research shows a continued increase in worldwide microbiology test volumes over the last 15 years. Total test volumes have increased 128%, and testing for specific foodborne pathogens like Salmonella and E. coli grew at an even faster rate. In 1998, pathogen testing represented just 13.7% of total food microbiology tests conducted, while today pathogen testing represents 23.2% of all such tests.
Food Micro-8 contains more than 100 pages of detailed graphs, analyses and discussion of key trends and issues, and includes a review of leading food diagnostic businesses and products. For the first time, additional appendices that delve into particular market topics are also available, including:
