Importance of Food Microbiology and Food Market Conference (Globally, Continent Wise (Europe, America, Asia pacific, and Middle East)

  1. Globally: Worldwide, the food supply available to people depends on a variety of environmental, technical, and socio-political factors, the relative importance of which have varied considerably in time as well as geographically. Environmental factors have governed food production and availability throughout history, and this remains so for many societies. However, in a world where food is abundant as never before, food supply is extremely vulnerable to economic and political interests, as well as technical factors, such as transportation and communications.  Food prices are set at the major stock exchange institutions in North America, Europe, and Japan. In competing for the hegemony of the global food market, the United States, the world's main food exporter, has been engaged in "food wars" with Japan and the European Union. International organizations, such as the recently formed WTO (World Trade Organization), have been created to defuse these conflicts, as well as to balance the "market distortions" that affect less powerful nations. The global food market is dominated by the most affluent countries, which, on average, have controlled almost 70 per cent of the total value of imports and over 62 per cent of the total value of exports of all agricultural products in the world since 1961. During the last quarter of the twentieth century, these countries have been reducing the value of their imports while expanding the value of their exports. Food imports by these countries typically concentrate on specialized agricultural items, such as tropical fruits and selected vegetables, as well as coffee, tobacco, sugar, and tea, none of which is a staple in its place of origin. In order to meet the domestic demand for staples, many of the exporting countries of such products have to import large quantities of basic staples in exchange.
  2. North-America Region: The U.S. market for Food Microbiology and food market totaled nearly $56.4 billion in 2014. This market is projected to approach $61.4 billion in 2015 and $69.4 billion by 2020, registering a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.5% through 2021.
  3. Europe : Europe food safety testing market is forecasted to reach USD 6.16 billion by 2024                   growing at a CAGR of 7.5% during the forecast period (2019-2024).
  • Food safety is a credence attribute as it cannot be observed by consumers before or after purchasing the product. Thus, testing methodologies, like traceability, microbiological quality, have been implemented both at the European and national levels to ensure effective monitoring and overall control.
  • The increase in food-borne diseases, contamination in food products, and rise in consumer awareness about food quality and safety are giving rise to the food safety testing market. Moreover, strict government regulations that safeguard the processed and unprocessed food products are supporting the market growth in Europe.
  1.   USA:Asia pacific: The Asia-Pacific food safety testing market is segmented based on contaminant type, food type, and country. The highly perishable food items such as fruit & vegetables and meat & poultry are increasingly analyzed for pathogens as well as residue. The processed food products segment has also come under stringent regulatory scanning following the recent food safety scares. The new entrants in the Asia-Pacific food safety testing market are facing intense competition from the established players who enjoy greater client confidence and greater recognition among consumers.

Market structure

The U.S. market for Food Microbiology and food market totalled nearly $56.4 billion in 2014. This market is projected to approach $61.4 billion in 2015 and $69.4 billion by 2020, registering a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.5% through 2021. The U.S. packaged food market size was estimated at USD 806.3 billion in 2016. Changing lifestyles, increased consumption of convenience foods among the masses are some of the major factors driving the overall market.

Development drivers

The continual development, testing and improvement of instrumentation, techniques and experimental procedures for the rapid and accurate enumeration and characterization of food microbiology is a rapidly expanding area. Such advances are of great importance in food quality control applications, as well as in the analysis of clinical, industrial and environmental samples. Some of the recently developed methods and assessment of their performance are reviewed. For example Cold-water-soluble starches are of commercial interest for use in instant foods such as puddings and microwave cooked foods, and small-crystallite starches have applications as fat substitutes. Various methods have been developed to produce a range of modified starch preparations with a variety of physical characteristics and applications. Study of such modified starches may also aid understanding of the structure of starch granules.

Market Potential

The global food safety testing market size was valued at $13,144 million in 2017, and is estimated to reach $23,204 million by 2025, registering a CAGR of 7.3% from 2018 to 2025. Food safety testing refers to the inspection of food products for disease-causing organisms, chemicals, and other hazardous materials. It is generally targeted at three primary food contaminants namely, pathogens, chemicals, and genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

Food fraud is committed when food is deliberately altered for financial gains with the intention of deceiving consumers. The food standards agency (FSA) specifies two main types of food frauds namely, sale of food that is unfit and potentially harmful and deliberate misdescription of food.

Implementation of various regulations on food safety, particularly in the developed economies, drives the growth of the global food safety testing market. Recycling of animal by-products, sale of goods past their use by date, inclusion of harmful ingredients, and unsafe food handling processes are some of the major food fraud activities. The consumption of contaminated food, including toxic chemicals and radioactive materials, results in foodborne illness, which may even lead to death. The implementation of stringent regulations by many leading food safety organizations, such as Food Standards Agency, European Food Safety Authority, Food Safety and Standards Authority of India, and Canadian Food Inspection Agency, to prevent ill health of consumers and food fraud is expected to drive the growth of the global food safety testing market.

In addition, rise in economically motivated adulterations (EMAs) due to high competition among food producers, and increase in instances of food debasement, such as adulterations, pesticides, artificial taste enhancers, and certifications, boost the growth of the food safety testing market. However, lack of food control infrastructure in the developing economies, complexity in testing techniques, and lack of harmonization of regulations are anticipated to hamper the growth of the market.

Conclusion:

Culture-based and genomics methods provide different insights into the nature and behavior of bacteria. Maximizing the usefulness of both approaches requires recognizing their limitations and employing them appropriately. Genomic analysis excels at identifying bacteria and establishing the relatedness of isolates. Culture-based methods remain necessary for detection and enumeration, to determine viability, and to validate phenotype predictions made on the bias of genomic analysis. The purpose of this short paper is to discuss the application of culture-based analysis and genomics to the questions food microbiologists routinely need to ask regarding bacteria to ensure the safety of food and its economic production and distribution. To address these issues appropriate tools are required for the detection and enumeration of specific bacterial populations and the characterization of isolates for, identification, phylogenetic, and phenotype prediction. The most commonly used forms of bacteriological analysis in food microbiology are detection and enumeration. The presence of specific bacteria and their concentration must be determined, to assess and control safety hazards, the potential for spoilage or to ensure correct product characteristics. The bacteria of interest to food microbiology can be divided into infectious agents, causes of foodborne intoxication, spoilage, and processing aids. Metabolic activity of a bacterium may be considered as causing spoilage or as a processing aid depending upon the desirability of the changes that result.

 

 

Visa

 

Any foreign national who is not a citizen of Canada or does not have visa exemption or Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA) agreement may apply for a visa to enter the country. The Canadian Government issues the following two types of visas to foreign nationals:

  • Temporary Canada Visa
  • Permanent Canada Visa

Temporary Canada Visa: The temporary Canada visas allow the person to stay in Canada for a specific period of time. This time is usually up to 6 months. However, the temporary visa can be single entry or multiple entry visas.

Single entry visa allows the person to only enter Canada once, stay for 6 months and then return to their home country. A multiple entry visa allows the person to enter Canada multiple times until their visa expires and stay temporarily. The list of temporary Tourist Visa are:

1. Tourist Visa: Tourist visa allows the holder to enter Canada for the purposes of tourism in the country.

2. Super Visa: It allows parents or grandparents of Canadian citizens or Canadian Permanent Residents to visit their children or grandchildren for an extended stay.

3. Diplomatic and Official Visa: It gives permission to officials and diplomats from foreign countries to enter Canada for official duties and purposes.

4. Courtesy Visa: It is given to all those people who do not qualify for a Diplomatic and Official Visa but are considered of importance due to their ranks and positions

7. Giving Birth Purpose visa: It is given to people who fulfill all the criteria to stay temporarily in Canada and who are pregnant and want to give birth in the country. Giving birth in Canada makes the baby automatically a Canadian citizen.

8. Organ Donors Visa: It is given to a person who is traveling to Canada with the purpose of donating an organ to a Canadian citizen or Permanent Resident.

9. Student Visa: It is given to those who have an admission from a Canadian university to complete their studies. If you are going to Canada to study for less than 6 months, then you can only get a general visa, but for more than 6 months of studies, you will need a Student Visa.

10.Temporary Foreign Workers: These are given to those people who have a job offer in Canada and will work for up to 6 months. To get this visa, the person must present a valid job offer letter from an employer and qualify for a temporary visa.

11. Temporary Resident Permit: This permit is for people who need to go to Canada for different purposes but are otherwise not admissible for a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV).

 

Permanent Canada Visa: The permanent Canada visas are visas which allow the holder to permanently settle in the country. These are otherwise known as immigrant visas and can be of different types, as follows.

1. Federal Skilled Trades Programme (FSTP): This visa is given to people who are qualified tradespeople in occupations such as Carpenters, Aircraft Mechanics, Crane Operators, Heavy-duty Equipment Mechanics, Electricians, Machinists, Ironworkers, Welders, Plumbers, etc.

2. Federal Skilled Workers Programme (FSWP): This visa is given to people who have professions which are required in Canada. You must check what kind of occupations Canada needs at the point you are planning to apply and obtain the necessary points.

3. Provincial Nomination Programme (PNP): This visa is given to semi or low-skilled workers who can contribute to the Canadian economy through their work. The workers are placed in different provinces of Canada where the demand for their work is higher.

4.Quebec Selected Skilled Worker Programme: If you have one of the occupations which are required in the Canadian province of Quebec and you are fluent in French, then you can apply for this visa which will allow you to move and work permanently there.

Travel Guide

Find out what you need to visit Canada as a tourist or business person, how to extend your stay in Canada and what documents you need to carry with you to transit through Canada.

Application submission:

Canada does not have a visa office in every country so it is important that Delegates/Attendees visit the website of the visa office responsible for processing their visa applications.  Information is available on the website on how to submit a visa application and the documentation required. 

Delegates/Attendees are encouraged to submit their visa applications well in advance of the date of the event at a Visa Application Centre or on-line E-applications (e-Apps).

E-Apps

This system allows clients to submit applications online.

Delegates/Attendees that need a visa but require their passport for other travel purposes are strongly encouraged to submit their visa applications on-line (e-Apps).  Delegates/Attendees that choose to apply on-line will not have to submit their passport until a decision has been taken on their applications.  If required, the visa office will send the applicant instructions on how and where to send their passports to finalize the visa process.  

Visa Application Centres (VACs):

VACs are commercial service providers authorized by Canada to provide specific services to applicants. 

VACs provide a number of services including help applicants fill out forms, answer questions and ensure that applications are complete, thereby reducing unnecessary delays or refusals due to incomplete applications.

Applicants that are required to provide biometrics information as part of the visa application process can do so at a VAC.  Additional information on the biometrics requirements is available at the IRCC website.

VACs send applications to Visa Offices and transmit decisions to applicants in a secure and confidential manner. VACs do not process visa applications and play no role in the decision-making process.

Visa Applications Processing Time:

Processing time for visa applications vary depending on the office and the time of the year.  Participants should be encouraged to apply early for their visas, and to submit complete applications including all supporting documents.  

Please visit the IRCC website for information on the time it takes to process visa applications at the various visa offices. 

NEW - Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA)

As of March 15, 2016, visa-exempt foreign nationals are expected to have an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to fly to or transit through Canada. Exceptions include U.S. citizens, and travellers with a valid Canadian visa. Canadian citizens, including dual citizens, and Canadian permanent residents are not eligible to apply for an eTA.

However, from March 15, 2016 until fall 2016, travellers who do not have an eTA can board their flight, as long as they have appropriate travel documents, such as a valid passport. During this time, border services officers can let travellers arriving without an eTA into the country, as long as they meet the other requirements to enter Canada. We invite you to consult the IRCC website regularly for information updates on eTA.
