"The Baby Food Sector in Denmark, 2018", is an analytical report by GlobalData which provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Danish market.
Per capita consumption of commercial baby food in Denmark is low, particularly in the case of baby meals, reflecting a continuing allegiance to traditional methods of feeding. Consumer perception that ready-prepared meals are unhealthy has traditionally held back demand, although manufacturers have responded to this issue by reducing levels of added sugar and salt in their recipes, or removing them entirely. Baby Food market value is expected to rise by 41.8% in current terms over the forecast period. In real terms, market value in 2023 is likely to be 26.6% higher than in 2017.
