“Meat starter culture help improve keeping or storing quality of the meat while maintaining the nutritional properties which enhances consumer acceptability of the meat products.” said Jimmy Joy, Senior analyst, Consumer Goods Market Research Center in WKI. “Manufactures must obtain environmental quality certificates, permit certificates and other relevant certifications before manufacturing microorganisms on an industrial level.”
Market insight:
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. The outbreak of the coronavirus in 2020 led to high unemployment rates and stalled dining at restaurants for several months; the shutdown during the pandemic has been causing people to cook more at home. The longer people stayed at their homes, they have been dependent on packaged food products and propelled the demand for food with a higher shelf-life.

Hansen (Denmark) launched a new starter culture in extension to its Bactoferm Series to primarily offer color, color stability, and development of flavor in dried, cured meats, such as dried sausages as per the rising demand in the North American and European regions. Many meat retailers are focusing on introducing their brands of processed meat products which are cost-effective, ready-to-cook, and can be stored for a longer period of time. This is considered to be one of the important factors impacting the growth of meat starter culture market. Increasing awareness among wide range of population regarding their protein intake in the daily diet has influenced growth of global meat industry and eventually the expansion of meat starter culture market. The meat starter culture industry is at high risk to health and the environment, so it will not be easy for new manufacturers to enter the meat starter culture market. Some of the leading players will include in our report: Chr. Hansen, Danisco, Kerry, SOYUZSNAB, International Flavors&Fragrances, Galactic, Sacco System, Canada Compound and others.
