Executive Summary

The French baby food industry performance was depressing during 2009 and 2010, affected by collapsed economy all over the world. The baby food industry is still in recovery phase but Eurozone crisis are expected to hit baby food growth in 2012 and 2013. After 2014, industry is expected to showcase a strong growth and open the doors for new players and industries related to baby food such as packaging and advertising. Organic baby food is also gaining importance registering 11% growth in 2011.
