LONDON, Nov. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Food certification plays a crucial role in building trust and credibility with the food industry's stakeholders and enhancing food trade across regions. These factors are critical to the food industry's growth potential.

The growth of end-user application segments such as processed meat & poultry, fresh food, organic food, and infant food is contributing significantly to the growth of the food certification market.
