Definitions

-PPE refers to specialized equipment worn by end users to protect themselves from serious injuries and illnesses resulting from exposure to workplace-related hazards. Physical, chemical, biological, thermal, and other workplace-related hazards vary across industries and pose serious risks to employee health and wellbeing. In the food processing industry, the role of PPE is to protect the employee and to ensure food safety. Examples of PPE include hard hats, bump caps, safety glasses and goggles, ear muffs and plugs, respirators, coveralls, and safety gloves.
-Food processing refers to all techniques utilized in converting raw ingredients into food for consumption. Food processing involves the transformation of cleaned, harvested crops or butchered animal components into marketable food products.

Scope of Research

-This research service focuses on PPE opportunities in the food processing industry. The wholesale and distribution segment, including transport and storage, is not dealt with in this report.
