With increasingly polluted environments and habitats, there is growing anxiety as to the safety of the products consumers use, more so the food they consume. A preference for organic baby products stems from a concern for health and general well-being, especially that of children.”

The increase in the number of working women globally has boosted the consumers' demand for puréed baby foods.
