PROSPECTS
Longer maternity leave allowance begins to constrain growth

The United Arab Emirates has increased maternity leave in a bid to improve the work/life balance of working mothers. As a result, working mothers from public industries are now entitled to 90-days’ maternity leave and 2-hour breastfeeding breaks.

Large pack types increasingly popular

Rising demand for large pack types is being seen across many packaged food categories, including baby food. Purchases in pharmacies are usually made by parents after a consultation with a paediatrician, especially during the first few months of a baby’s life.

Metal tins remain the most important packaging format for baby food

Dubai Municipality regulates import and re-export requirements for foodstuffs entering the country. Displaying nutritional information on food labels is required for baby food.
