Leckerei which is an organic baby food producer from Switzerland can bring the UK baby food which is nutritious and wholesome in order to support the development and growth of your baby.


The market of baby meals and baby milk both appears to have become more competitive in the period since merger. Prices and margins have fallen, and there has been innovation in the product range, with organic products quickly expanding their share of the meals market, and ready- to drink products making an impact in the milk sector. Overall the organic food market as a whole has been growing steadily over the past few years in some cases; the organic baby food ranges have virtually overtaken conventional products. The supermarkets in the UK are reporting sales of organic baby food ranging from 22% of the market (Sainsbury’s) to 53% (Waitrose).
