Several working mothers, especially in urban areas, return to their jobs shortly after childbirth, and these products are a good option as they combine nutrition and health with convenience.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Premium price of organic baby foods. Though organic foods are healthy alternatives for harmful processed foods, the high price of these foods is a major concern among consumers. One of the major factors for the high pricing is the high production costs. The premium price of organic baby foods compared with conventional baby foods is another challenge faced by the global organic baby food market.
