Farm gate price of eggs nearly halved

The farm gate price of eggs in Hungary has fallen about 45% since last Easter, Péter Földi, an advisor for the Egg Association, told MTI on Thursday.

Farmers now sell their medium-size eggs for HUF 14-15 apiece on average, while consumers pay about HUF 28 for eggs in trays and HUF 32-36 for eggs in boxes, Földi said.

Hungarian farmers produce about 2.5 billion eggs a year and another 200 million eggs are imported. The egg business in Hungary is worth an annual HUF 25 billion-28 billion.
