The regions are also witnessing a high economic growth which is enhancing the purchasing capabilities of people in these countries. All these factors are positively impacting the baby food industry in the MENA region. Despite strong preference for breastfeeding and home-cooked food amongst the masses, a rising percentage of the upper middle class and high income groups are increasingly buying packaged baby foods in Saudi Arabia. Changing lifestyle patterns and increasing western affluences are amongst the major factors which have encouraged the demand for baby food in Israel.
