The success story of the Australian baby food market has been finger foods; where sales rose by 11.3% in 2014, while volume was also up by 4.4%. The lead of the sector is hotly contested between Heinz (which has a marginal lead in value terms) and Rafferty's Garden (which is ahead in volume). Only Organic is also significant in the sector, ranking third with nearly 17% of value sales. In Spain Fruit-based jars represent 34.5% of the baby meals sector. Plum is clear market leader in the organic baby food sector, and gained distribution and share in the first quarter of the year in the USA.
- Sales of milks through grocery and drug market outlets only rose by 36% in 2014. Volumes rose by 23%, largely as a result of the continuing growth in demand from China, while a double-digit price increase also boosted sales.
- According to Retail World's latest annual survey, the grocery market for baby food excluding infant formula managed a marginal 0.5% increase in 2014. However, volume was down by 4.5%, with a changing product mix in favor of lightweight but expensive finger foods boosting value and depressing volume.
- In Danone's first quarter of 2015, Early Life Nutrition sales rose by 18.6% or 11.6% on a like-for-like basis, with a 4.4% like-for-like increase in volume and a 7.2% price increase.
