The Food Standards Agency (FSA) specifies two main types of food frauds, namely sale of food that is unfit and potentially harmful and deliberate misdescription of food. In the recent times, food authenticity testing is not just a tool to identify gross substitution such as whisky, horsemeat, or olive oil, it is now quite possible to differentiate between Welsh or Scottish lamb, farmed or wild salmon, and pure or sweetened fruit juice. Food authenticity testing is not only used in identification of gross substitution in whisky, horsemeat, or olive oil but also is used to differentiate between Welsh or Scottish lamb, farmed or wild salmon, and pure or sweetened fruit juice.

The global market is driven by various regulations on food safety particularly in the developed economies, growth in instances of food fraud, and rise in EMA (Economically Motivated Adulterations), owing to high competition among food producers. However, high cost of food authenticity, availability of relatively cheap substitutes, and anti-dumping policies on food authenticity are expected to hamper the market growth.
