Food safety testing refers to the inspection of food products for disease-causing organisms, chemicals, and other hazardous materials. Food safety testing is targeted at three primary food contaminants such as pathogens, chemicals, and genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

Stringent regulations imposed in food industry, advancements in technology, and increased globalization of food trade are some of the major drivers that are propelling the growth of the market. As per an article published by WHO, children below 5 year carry 40.0% of the foodborne disease burden, with more than 125000 deaths every year. Diarrhoea is the most common illnesses owing to consumption of contaminated food. More than 550 million people suffer annually from diarrhoeal disease. Lack of infrastructure for food control and resources in developing countries are major barriers that restrain the market growth.. However, rising consumer awareness about food safety is expected to create new opportunities for market expansion. Time-consuming testing methods and lack of harmonization of food Safety regulations are some of the key challenges for food Safety testing market.

The key players in this market include Intertek Group plc (UK), Bureau Veritas SA (France), and ALS Limited (Australia). Others include Mérieux NutriSciences (US), TÜV SÜD (Germany), SGS SA (Switzerland), AsureQuality Ltd (New Zealand), TÜV Nord Group (Germany), Microbac Laboratories, Inc. (US), Genetic ID NA, Inc. (US), and Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings (US), Eurofins Scientific (Luxembourg), and others. 

Owing to rising demand for food safety from emerging economies, major companies are launching new food safety services. For instance, in July 2016, Bureau Veritas launched a new digital service to help food retailers and restaurateurs to manage food safety and operations effectively and cost-efficiently.
