Egg prices in India hit record levels


Egg prices in India reached record levels recently, with retail prices in some areas hitting USD 0.07 last month. Data on the wholesale prices of eggs showed that in the major consuming centres, prices in the first seven months of 2016 were 13-17% higher than last year’s levels.

Egg prices cool off in the summer months of March to May, and begin to soar again from August or September, usually hitting highs in December and January. This year, prices remain elevated even in the summer months. India’s egg output has grown to 78.5 billion eggs in 2015 from 46.2 billion eggs in 2005.
