The North American food safety testing market is projected to reach $6.4 billion by 2020, at a combined annual growth rate of 7.4 percent from 2015 to 2020, according to a Research and Markets report, “North American Food Safety Market by Contaminant, Technology, Food Tested & Country – Trends & Forecast to 2020.”
In 2014, the U.S. dominated the North American food safety testing market. Food safety testing is a method of manufacturing, handling, and storing food and food products to prevent food-borne illnesses and poisoning.
