They have entered the global markets with force in the past years and rapidly gained market share. Along with the economic development, Bangladesh has also become an attractive market for healthier food product brands. There is also a boost in Health Food Drinks (HFD) consumption. While previously HFD considered as an expensive and non-regular drink, now it is being consumed by middle class and even lower-middle-class people as a regular drink for kids. But there is another side of the coin. Growing market competitiveness, the rise of Milk Powder Brands as a competitive force and increasing parallel import are some issue need to be considered.
