This global annual market overview will provide you with an in-depth review of the key issues in the global food safety, regulation and labelling market through 2014 as well as our forecast for what will happen in 2015 and beyond.

An increasing demand for transparency has continued to shape our approach to regulation, labeling and food safety.

Consumers’ curiosity about food continues to place demands on manufacturers to provide more information about their products. In 2014, discussions around nutrition have continued to stress the importance of moderation.

The overabundance of added sugars in the diet has received attention around the world, resulting in new labeling initiatives in Canada and the US and led to taxes on sugary beverages in India and Mexico.

As we predicated in 2013, empowering consumers with knowledge about their food has continued to be an important issue. Not only does this include information about safety and healthfulness, but provenance and sustainability as well.

From the use of antibiotics in livestock feed to labeling genetically modified organisms (GMOs) on packaged foods, consumers are looking for more information about how their food is produced. In response to consumers’ thirst for knowledge, new websites and smart phone apps have emerged to answer their questions about unfamiliar ingredients or provide consumers with additional nutritional information.
