Market Growth to Remain amid COVID-19 Pandemic

The onset of the novel COVID-19 pandemic is expected to have a minor impact on the overall state of the global food safety testing market. Although test results and testing procedures were off-schedule in the second quarter of 2023 due to the uncertainty associated with the lockdown regulations in several nations, in the current scenario, operations are back on track and expected to remain smooth during the entirety of 2023. However, routine surveillance of food facilities and farms has been postponed in several regions of the world due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic following which the demand for a range of food products has experienced a slight decline. However, although the retail supply chain has remained unaffected by the COVID-19 pandemic, the production of several food and beverages has witnessed a drastic decline in several regions.

The spread of COVID-19 has impacted health, nutrition, livelihoods, and well-being of people and will have lasting effects on them. Nutritional, environmental, and economic impact are the main concerns of changing consumer preferences in food safety. There is also increasing awareness of linkages between food demand and dietary choice, global food security, and environmental outcomes such as water use and climate change.
