Belgium Baby Food Sector Market Growth Analysis By Danone Nutricia Belgique SA., Nestlé Belgilux SA NV, Hero Nederland BV, Mondelez Belgium BVBA, Hipp GmbH & Co Vertrieb KG, Ella’s Kitchen Benelux

“The Baby Food Sector in Belgium, 2019”, is an analytical report by GlobalData which provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Belgian market.

Since 2011, the number of births has declined, although a slight upturn is estimated for 2018. Manufacturers have tried to stimulate stagnant sales through advertising, including increased use of online media, but the market remains conservative and underdeveloped. Milks are dominant in value (59% in 2018), but rank second in volume at 40%. They have outperformed all other categories. While meals are the second largest category, unusually, finger foods are in third position. Both cereals and drinks have fallen sharply. Belgium is heavily reliant on imports, which are sourced mainly from Spain, France, Germany, and the Netherlands. Exports are rising, destined for the EU countries. Danone remains the clear leader, accounting for 40% of value sales, and leading in milks, wet meals, and drinks. Nestlé — on 37% — is gradually closing the gap with Danone. The only other significant company is Hero. The majority of baby food sales are made through grocery outlets. Although pharmacies remain important in milks, they have lost importance as the market has swung towards third-stage milks, which are predominantly sold in grocery outlets. Pharmacies are minor players in the distribution of other baby food. Although the number of births is forecast to rise slightly, the sector is expected to show only modest growth. Growth in milks, meals, and finger foods will be offset by sharp falls in cereals and drinks.
