Increasing food delivery services globally and high demand for single-serve and portable food packs are expected to propel the industry growth over the next few years.
Key Industry Insights & Findings from the report:
The new design offers dairy, personal care and plant-based processors a higher level of hygiene and food safety, SPX FLOW said.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — SPX FLOW, Inc., a provider of process solutions for the nutrition, health and industrial markets, has announced a new APV Aseptic Rapid Recovery System. The new technology, featuring steam barriers and pressurization, is the one of the first with this design for high-value and sensitive products. The design offers dairy and plant-based processors a sustainable way to increase productivity, reduce waste and provide greater product yields while offering the highest level of food safety.
The market for ambient yogurt and dessert —?which use aseptic systems — is on the rise. Ambient yogurts are heat-treated after fermentation, providing similar benefits as cold yogurt but with a longer shelf life. These products demand an aseptic setup for downstream process. SPX FLOW’s new recovery system is a perfect fit for this application, the company said, saving more high-value product through a quicker cleaning process. It can also be used for other high-viscosity products, including creams, cosmetics and nutraceuticals.
“Customers no longer need to flush valuable products down the drain,” said Pranav Shah, SPX FLOW Market Director of Dairy, Beverage and Plant-Based. “This exciting new offering for our customers can help across the board — from a more sustainable process to less plant downtime to higher yields for neutral pH, low acidic products.”
The Aseptic Rapid Recovery System is designed to clear product from process pipes in a more sustainable way —?using approximately 60 to 70 percent less water compared to other cleaning systems. The Rapid Recovery System can easily retrofit into existing plants, providing them the ability to expand their product lines into more ambient offerings.
“One of the best parts is that businesses do not need to overhaul their system to benefit from these upgrades,” Shah says. “The parts are accessible, serviceable and ergonomic, so they fit into small spaces without having to make major changes.” 
Customers using the Rapid Recovery System will have peace of mind knowing that they have the highest quality products and customer service by choosing SPX FLOW, the company said. Parts are traceable and the system is optimized for aftermarket parts, including valves, actuators and gaskets that are already in inventory. 
“We’re always looking to be on the forefront when it comes to helping our customers with their sustainability, hygiene and safety goals,” says Shah. “With this growing trend in ambient and long-life food and beverage products, we hope that more businesses will be able to use the benefits of this system to grow and innovate for their customers, as well.” 
A few of the leading industry drivers include the presence of key food safety regulations and strict monitoring by food safety organizations, the report said.
SELBYVILLE, Del. — As per the report published by Global Market Insights Inc., the global Food Pathogen Testing Market size is estimated to cross $9 billion by 2030, progressing at a compound annual growth rate of 7.9% from 2022 to 2030. 
A few of the leading industry drivers include the presence of key food safety regulations and strict monitoring by food safety organizations. For instance, in the UK, the Food Safety Agency (FSA) was established to address the concerns associated with outbreaks of foodborne illnesses caused by pathogens. Implementation of programs focusing on imported foods, hygiene policy, and compliance to reduce foodborne disease will foster pathogen testing developments.
Lack of awareness and compliance with food & safety norms among manufacturers in developing countries, in addition to infrastructure deficit, are key factors that could hamper the industry growth. A shifting focus toward advanced storage infrastructure, enhanced food control capabilities and improved awareness may help to tackle the market restrictions.   
Rising incidences of food poisoning necessitates campylobacter contaminant testing
The study finds that global food pathogen testing market share from campylobacter contaminants will depict over 6.5% CAGR from 2022 to 2030. Campylobacter is a bacteria associated with food poisoning and bacterial gastroenteritis. It causes foodborne illnesses via consumables such as contaminated chicken, raw dairy products, and undercooked meat. Rising incidences of foodborne illnesses in developed countries with greater consumption of processed or raw meat will expand the use of pathogen testing.
Pathogen testing requirements increase for fruits & vegetables
Food pathogen testing is prominently done for fruits and vegetables to detect GMOs, chemicals, pesticides, and pathogens, says the report. There is a complex supply chain comprising a long cycle of distribution and consumption for the products. Fresh fruits and vegetables stock needs multiple interventions for quality assessment and pathogen testing prior to consumption. The food pathogen testing market share from fruits and vegetables segment is anticipated to exhibit over 7% CAGR between 2022-2030.
Europe to witness large-scale investment in healthcare infrastructure
Europe food pathogen testing market share will expand at nearly 7.8% CAGR up to 2030. The region has witnessed strong efforts to strengthen food security, safety, and hygiene for consumers. Rising investments in overall healthcare infrastructure will support the industry outlook. European governments have invested several billion dollars in local healthcare infrastructure to address outbreaks of foodborne diseases. For example, in 2021, the government in Poland had announced an investment worth over USD 1.6 billion for enhancing its healthcare sector over the coming years.
As the impact of the COVID-19 crisis declines, food manufacturing companies will look to reinforce their supply chain capabilities to ensure better product safety. The changing trends and challenges brought on the pandemic has created a need to develop more secure and sustainable supply chain networks. High consumption of dairy, cereals, packaged meat products and fruits in emerging economies will augment food pathogen testing applications across regions such as Asia Pacific, MEA and Latin America.
The competitive landscape of food pathogen testing industry is comprised of leading organizations such as Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance Limited, Campden BRI, Det Norske Veritas As (Dnv), ILS Limited, RapidBio Systems, Inc., Agilent Technologies, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc, SGS S.A., Intertek Group PLC, Eurofins Scientific, Asurequality, ALS Limited, Genetic Id Na Inc., Silliker, Inc., Genon Laboratories Ltd, and Genevac Ltd., among many others. These firms are focused on expanding their market position by means of new regional partnerships and acquisitions.
