Baby Food and Drink - Europe - July 2010

Value sales of baby foods and drinks have continued to report positive growth in Europe, supported by added-value products. The market performed well, despite the recession, with parents ready to pay more for premium products, in order to ensure their baby’s health and wellbeing.
Volume sales have been hindered by a variety of factors including: the rising number of women who breastfeed, a declining birth-rate, and a more recent trend that sees parents opting for home-cooked meals.
