Baby food prospects are strong as populations and economies grow. Whilst China is key in terms overall opportunity, extension across a range of markets will be paramount for manufacturers seeking to expand. High birth rates and rising disposable incomes are especially relevant in a number of Middle East and African countries.

Currently, Zenith estimates the market at over US$50 billion and it is forecast to be the fastest growing packaged food category over the next 5 years, achieving increases in excess of 7% a year.

Demand is especially buoyant for premium, fortified, functional and organic product varieties in emerging markets amongst high income consumers. Nevertheless, the industry is dealing with an acutely public environment. The importance of safety cannot be underestimated and confidence is vital.

The Early Nutrition Conference will be divided into four parts:

Market opportunities
International market analysis including changing trends and growth potential in emerging markets and retail.

Improving early nutrition
Insights into industry best practice including better and accessible information, support for good nutrition and breast milk research.

Innovation and initiatives
A focus on emerging markets and what is needed to stay ahead in response to unprecedented demand.

Creativity and technology
Being both creative and nutritious plus a look at the newest technology and best of packaging innovation.
