About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Innovation has been a key driver in the performance of baby food in 2013, while aggressive advertising campaigns and point-of-sale promotions were developed by the main manufacturers to maintain or their sales shares. Given the intense level of competition in baby food, unit prices and value for money deals remain an important driver of sales, this type of promotion is especially important in prepared baby food. The launch of a new packaging format (doypack) by Alimentos Heinz de Costa Rica supported significant change in the dynamism of baby food, introducing a completely new concept into the market that is more convenient than traditional glass packaging.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Nestlé dominates baby food in Costa Rica, the company is expected to hold 39% of the total current value sales of baby food in 2013. This is due to the strong participation of its well-known brands Nestum and Gerber, which are broadly available in most grocery retailers (traditional and modern) while offering very competitive prices. However, the international brand Heinz has continued to consolidate its position in the sales of baby food, thanks to its doypack presentation, as well as the innovative flavours the company has introduced to prepared baby food, achieving an expected 25% of baby food sales in 2013. In the case of milk formulas, Mead Johnson Nutrition and Laboratorios Abbott were the clear leaders, accounting for an expected 12% and 11% of the category sales respectively in 2013. Both companies maintain good brand recognition through health care specialists, who often recommend these brands to their patients.

PROSPECTS

  • Over the forecast period, blended flavours are expected to be developed for the baby food market in Costa Rica, while more convenient packaging and product diversification from the larger companies is also expected. The development of cookies and cereals in baby food is expected as the major companies take advantage of the high growth baby food has undergone since 2010. Manufacturers and product designers are also expected to take environmental issues into consideration, an increasingly important factor for many mothers, while social responsibility is also becoming an important trend in Costa Rica. Innovation will continue to be a key driver in baby food, with manufacturers focussing on product that provide value for money between 2013 and 2018.
