The US food industry generates more than $1 trillion in sales and is a huge market. It is commonly believed that the US food market has no room for growth. However, consumers are increasingly turning away from foods with undesirable ingredients. As a result, there will be cultivated products appearing on consumer's tables. Vegetables and fruits are increasingly becoming popular in markets and food service industries as people become more health-conscious. The demand for convenience foods such as canned and frozen foods will also increase. For the next five years, we’ll see consumers shift their concerns toward food safety. With the COVID-19 epidemic, people will be more aware of food-related health risks. Consumers are beginning the shift their concerns towards food safety. With numerous outbreaks related to unsafe food, consumers are becoming much more aware of the health risks.
The spread of COVID-19 has made food more difficult to develop, requiring food manufacturers to meet hygiene and safety standards from raw materials to packaging. Food manufacturers face mounting pressure to comply with tight regulations in the food industry. The emergence of new pathogens, the potentially deadly strain of COVID-19, has added to the complexity of maintaining good manufacturing practices.
The United States is amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and many food manufacturers have to invest more money in the hygiene and safety of production. Food safety, quality, and hygiene are becoming increasingly important to consumers, both in terms of fresh processed foods and ingredients. These challenges mean that US food manufacturers will need to adopt new strategies for ensuring product safety and quality, at the same time strengthening their product branding. A new technique for labeling is emerging with what we call “fine print” on labels - the “traceability code” serves as a label within a label. Consumers are using QR code scanners to quickly gather information about the products they buy.
Food safety is one of the most important issues in the food industry. To prevent COVID-19 and other potential pathogens, everything from raw materials to packaging should undergo nucleic acid testing to ensure the absolute safety of food.
