Summary

French attitudes to commercially prepared baby food have undergone a change in the past few years. Information from manufacturers, coupled with the Nutri-Bebe 2013 survey, confirm that there is a growing trend towards mothers feeding their babies home-made food in preference to commercially prepared food and a trend towards organic rather than standard food. These moves are based on a lack of confidence in the baby food industry. According to Blédina, in 2014 only 47% of parents thought that commercially prepared baby food was safe an extremely low proportion.

Key Findings

  • Consumption has fallen by 9.3% since 2008, with declines in all sectors apart from milks. Baby milks saw a slight increase of 2.1% over the review period.
  • In terms of volume, wet meals constitute the bulk of the French market, accounting for 54.2% of consumption in 2014. In terms of value, however, milks dominate, claiming 53.9% of retail sales in 2014.
  • Large food retailers now control the majority of sales in every sector of the baby food market, taking an overall value share of 83.6% in 2014.
  • The market for baby food in France is expected to continue to decline in 2015 before beginning to recover gradually from 2016 onwards, as the economic situation starts to improve.
