World Trade Organization

The World Trade Organization (WTO) has laid down stringent rules and regulations for the import and export of living microbes. The manufacturer has to obtain an environment clearance certificate, quality certificate, and some other related certifications before manufacturing microorganisms at the industrial level. Since the starter culture industry involves high risk with respect to the health and environment, it would not be easy for new manufacturers to enter the starter culture market. There have been special regulatory measures present for companies to discard the culture and biological effluent after the production.

European Food Safety Authority & Qualified Presumption of Safety

The uses of bacteria must conform to the general food safety standards, such as the European General Food Law (European Parliament and the Council, 2002). The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) had announced five ‘generic’ approaches for the safety assessment of microorganisms in food with a history of safe use. This approach includes a qualified presumption of safety (QPS) in food. QPS derives basic knowledge of the microorganisms that includes its pathogenicity, taxonomy, familiarity, and application in food. The Scientific Committee of EFSA indicates that a thorough knowledge of the microorganism is sufficient for awarding the QPS status for numerous species from the groups of lactic acid bacteria and yeast.

Speak to Analyst:

The European region dominated the meat starter culture market with the largest share in 2019.
