Bloomberg: UK is struggling with supply of eggs disappearing from some stores’ shelves

MOSCOW, November 24 – RIA Novosti. UK is experiencing shortage of chicken eggs, product has disappeared from shelves in some supermarkets, reports Agency Bloomberg.

As noted in the publication, an outbreak of bird flu in the United States and Europe led to mass culling of poultry. As a result, egg prices topped the list for food inflation in the US in October, and the government is curbing prices in Hungary.

Analysts point out that general food inflation could play a role in the shortage, as cash-strapped customers switch from meat to cheaper protein sources (which are already eggs). In addition, the demand for eggs is usually higher in winter, especially during the Christmas period.

Another problem is that the delivery volume cannot be increased quickly due to the peculiarities of production. “We don’t make tools for beer cans. We have live animals that make a natural product. The chicken carries what the chicken carries,” Phill Crowley, vice president of the National Farmers’ Association Poultry Council, told the agency.

It appears from the publication that the egg situation in the British market may worsen as the Christmas holidays approach. Farmers say the rising cost of chicken feed is reducing their margins. According to a survey of British Egg Breeders’ Association members, one-third of them are reducing the number of chickens or suspending or completely discontinuing egg production.
