Summary

"The Baby Food Market in Belgium 2017", is an analytical report which provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Belgian market.

Belgium baby food market has generally struggled, although it has improved in the last three years. By 2016, value sales were 10% up on 2010. Sales were hit by the poor economic situation, particularly in 2012-2013, by the falling number of births, and by the resurgent popularity of home cooking. Manufacturers have tried to stimulate sales by advertising, including online media, and by introducing new products, but the market remains conservative and underdeveloped by European standards. Nonetheless, the baby food market is expected to grow over the next six years, boosted by slightly higher birth numbers and by an economy that is expected to grow, albeit modestly.
