Food Retailers Dominate Baby Food Sales in Portugal, Says Canadean in Its Report Available at MarketPublishers.com

23 Jun 2016 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – A sharp decline registered in the number of births in Portugal has hit the local baby food marketplace to a great extent. Cereals used to be the largest sector in this market, but the situation changed in 2006 when they were dethroned by wet meals.

In 2015, an approximately 35% share of the market (in terms of volume) belonged to baby meals and they were followed by cereals, baby milks, baby drinks and finger foods.

Infant formulae, however, is well ahead of cereals and wet meals in terms of value.

In 2015, the Portuguese market showed an increase after six years of being idle. In 2015, overall consumption of baby food in this country was just slightly over 18% of the one in 2009.

Pharmacies held a small 10% share of the sales in 2015, while this share was around two times higher in 2000.
