Understanding Australian Infant Milk Formula Brands in the China Market

Design and manage a consumer survey of mothers in China.


An Australian investor was keen to track the performance of Australian infant milk formula brands in China. With little insight into the Chinese market, the investment firm needed to learn what drives brand selection among infant formula consumers and understand prevailing market trends.

The GLG Solution

GLG Research conducted a survey targeting 500 mothers with zero- to two-year-old children in China. The Survey team’s market research expertise coupled with their deep understanding of the cultural nuances helped uncover more in-depth results, with the respondents being tiered by demographic attributes, including city tiers. The survey was administered in Mandarin/Simplified Chinese.

GLG’s top-tier data quality and project management made it easy for the client to continue this engagement and turn the survey into a quarterly market tracker.


The project was concluded within two weeks. The client found the survey valuable and ran successful internal reviews. The survey was subsequently conducted quarterly, helping the client identify major trends over time.
