Food certification is not restricted to finished products – it can also apply to any stage within the manufacturing process. This includes certification requirements from early stages in production down to food sales. This ensures the use of ingredients and chemicals that are allowed by government agencies. Failure to be certified with the necessary food certification could result in the curtailment of the sale of the food product. Even at a sales level, the absence of certain certificates could be used by consumers to avoid these products. On the other hand, the presence of valid certification allows products to hold a positive image in the consumers’ minds, thereby increasing its sales. Therefore, the food and beverage industry needs to maintain its pace with the given certification standards in order to retain and improve its level of sales.

The primary driver of the global food certification market is the increasing awareness among consumers about various certifications and the quality standards they hold.
