Globalization has led to the world becoming a smaller place, characterized by increasing trade activities, including in the food and beverages sector. This has led to rampant increase in import and export of food items across region, so to maintain the quality of food and establish commercially, the self-life of food is need to be enhanced. Europe is the second largest market for food ingredients due to increasing demand for healthier alternative to regular food.
