05 Jul 2016 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – The growing number of birth and relatively buoyant economy over the recent years have stimulated growth of the Turkish baby food marketplace. Manufacturers’ strong marketing also encouraged this growth.

Retail sales grew by more than 130% at current prices over the period 2009-2015, but they were only 46% up at constant prices of 2009.

The country’s economy is set to perform relatively well, and annual real growth is forecast to average 4%.

Baby milks lead in terms of sales, they accounted for just under 86% in terms of volume and more than 94% in terms of value as of 2015. Cereals and dry meals held a cumulative 4.9% share of volume sales in the same year.
