Market Analaysis

Food quality in the United States is enforced by the Food Safety Act 1990. Today more than ever, food products regularly cross national boundaries at every stage of the supply chain. Food quality is the quality characteristics of food that is acceptable to consumers. This includes external factors as appearance (size, shape, color, gloss, and consistency), texture, and flavor; factors such as federal grade standards (e.g. of eggs) and internal (chemical, physical, microbial). Members of the public complain to trading standards professionals, who submit complaint samples and also samples used to routinely monitor the food marketplace to public analysts. Public analysts carry out scientific analysis on the samples to determine whether the quality is of sufficient standard. Food quality is an important food manufacturing requirement, because food consumers are susceptible to any form of contamination that may occur during the manufacturing process. Food quality standards is needed to create confidence in the products we eat or drink by ensuring the world uses the same recipe when it comes to food quality, safety and efficiency.


ConferenceSeries Ltd Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The conference series  website will provide you list and details about the conference organize worldwide.

Importance and scope:

Many consumers also rely on manufacturing and processing standards, particularly to know what ingredients are present, due to dietary, nutritional requirements (kosher, halal, vegetarian), or medical conditions (e.g., diabetes, or allergies). Besides ingredient quality, there are also sanitation requirements. It is important to ensure that the food processing environment is as clean as possible in order to produce the safest possible food for the consumer. A recent example of poor sanitation recently has been the 2006 North American E. coli outbreak involving spinach, an outbreak that is still under investigation after new information has come to light regarding the involvement of Cambodian nationals. Food quality also deals with product traceability, (e.g., of ingredient, and packaging suppliers), should a recall of the product be required. It also deals with labeling issues to ensure there is correct ingredient and nutritional information. There are many existing international quality institutes testing food products in order to indicate to all consumers which are higher quality products. Founded in 1961 in Brussels, The International Quality Institute Monde Selection is the oldest one in evaluating food quality. During the degustation, the products must meet the following selection criteria, required by the Institute: sensory analysis, bacteriological and chemical analysis, the nutrition and health claims, and the utilization notice. In short, the judgments are based on the following areas: taste, health, convenience, labeling, packaging, environmental friendliness and innovation. As many consumers rely on manufacturing and processing standards, the Institute Monde Selection takes into account the European Food Law.

Statistical Analysis:

The global population is growing at a rate of 1.14% and the increasing calorie intake per capita is leading to substantial increase in the global food production. Growing urbanization and changing lifestyles are driving demand for convenience and packaged foods. The packaged food industry recorded US $2.4 trillion in retail sales for the year 2014. In the processed and packaged foods, ensuring food safety and quality starting from transportation to farm to fork and storage facilities is a major concern. To meet this demand, food additives are used. Food additives which are used to enhance the taste, color, texture of food, same time maintaining the freshness and nutritional content, are expected to cross US $50 billion by 2020; growing at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2015 and 2020. Food enzymes are major food additives which convert complex molecules into simpler ones in our diet. The food enzymes market in Europe was valued is expected to reach US$ 2695 million by 2020, with a CAGR of 8.1% for the forecast period of 2015-2020. The Asia-Pacific base oil market is estimated to register a CAGR of 3.5% between 2015 and 2020 and the demand is estimated to reach 25,226.5 KT by 2020. The market for functional food ingredients is estimated to reach $2.5 Billion, growing at a CAGR of about 6% from 2015 to 2020.

Sessions and Tracks

Food Quality:

 Quality is a measure of the degree of excellence or degree of acceptability by the consumer. Food quality is the set of consumer requirements such as safety, commodity, nutritional and sensory. This includes external factors such as size, shape, color, consistency, flavor and texture.

 

      Food quality is an important food manufacturing requirement, because food consumers are susceptible to any kind of contamination that may occur during manufacturing process. It is important to ensure that the food processing environment is clean in order to produce the safest possible food for the consumer. The important components of food quality are: food safety, sensory characteristics and nutritional value. Nutritive value is one of the important characteristics, which is now considered by the consumers as a quality attribute. Safety of food is a basic requirement of food quality.

Food Quality Management:

Food quality management includes maintaining food safety and security .It is very important for the food processors to create and maintain thorough safety management system. The food industry has a number of Quality Assurance (QA) systems available like GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices), HACCP (Hazard Analysis, Critical Control Points) and ISO (International Organization for standardization) standards. These systems and their combinations are recommended for food quality and safety assurance. It is very important to know to what extent these systems contribute to the total quality of the product and to balance the tools used for achieving the quality and safety objectives.

Food Laws and Regulations:

In order to promote a safe, honesty food supply and to prohibit the sale of foods that are unsafe, contaminated, and adulterated every nation needs an effective food legislation and food control service. Food is governed by a complexity of laws and regulations which set out the government’s requirements to be met by people to ensure the food is safe and of adequate quality. Generally food law can be divided in to two parts ,a basic food act ,regulations. These laws and regulations implement on practices that are related to food labeling, food hygiene, food additives and pesticide residues, as well as policies on biotechnology and food guidelines for the management of governmental import and export inspection certification systems for foods. The proper implementing of such law encourages fair trade practices through compliance with the basic provisions of food law.

Food Safety Concerns:

Food safety refers to those hazards that make food injurious to health, for example bacteria, pollution and many more. Quality includes the influence of a product’s valve to the consumer which includes negative aspects like spoilage, contamination, with filths, discoloration, off odors, color, texture, origin, and flavor. These two factors have direct implementation on consumer protection and influence the food control system. Consumers expect protection from hazards occurring due to contamination this can be achieved by regular implementation and check on food safety and quality.

Global Food Security:

Food security is a condition in which all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient safe and nutritious food that meets their dietary and food preferences for an active and healthy life. Economic growth is only sustainable if all countries have food security. Without country-owned and country-driven food security strategies, there will be obstacles and additional costs to global, regional and country-level economic growth. According to the definition there are four dimension of food security, Physical availability of food, Economic and physical access to food, Food utilization, Stability of the other three dimensions over time. Hunger, Malnutrition and Poverty are such topics which are related to global food security.

Voluntary standards and schemes:

Voluntary standards are those standards which specify the requirement’s that producers, traders, manufactures, relators may be asked to meet a wide range of sustainability metrics. Voluntary standards may be developed by individual businesses, environmental or social NGO’s or governments. Voluntary standards have the potential to generate significant environmental, economic and social benefits in developing countries.

There are many different kinds of voluntary sustainability standards. Some focus on specific sectors such as forest management, agriculture, mining or fisheries. Some are intended to support particular groups such as cooperatives, small-scale farmers or artisanal miners. Some focus on specific environmental or social factors such as water use, biodiversity, greenhouse gas emissions or workers’ rights. Some cover the full range of environmental impacts throughout a product’s life cycle, from the extraction of raw materials to a product’s final disposal. Some identify and promote ‘best practice’, some support continuous improvement and others aim to combine both approaches

Issues influencing the evolution of food safety:

Food safety is all about preparing food, storing and handling to prevent any food borne illness and to make sure that our food keeps enough nutrients for us to have a healthy diet. Safer food promises healthier and long lives and less costly health care as well as more resilient food industry. Contaminated and adultered foods are major causes for several  food borne illnesses .Food borne illnesses are preventable and  underreported public health problem. Some people are at greater risk like children below age 4 and people older than age 50.

Complications in food safety:

Food safety involves the safe handling of food from the time it is grown, packaged, distributed, and prepared to prevent foodborne poisoning. Food safety is the responsibility of those who handle and prepare food commercially for delivery to consumers and of consumers who prepare and eat food in their homes. The most common serious complication of food poisoning is dehydration — a severe loss of water and essential salts and minerals. Kidney failure, chronic arthritis, brain and nerve damage are some other complications of food safety. However these complications can be prevented by taking some safety measures.
