Experts have predicted the growth in prices for eggs
Before the end of this year, chicken eggs will rise in price by 10-15% – to UAH 26 per dozen on the average in Ukraine.
Such predictions from the scientists of the Institute of agrarian economy.
Sharp jump of the prices for this kind of production is explained by the fact that the cost of grain, which is the basis of the diet of the bird feeding depends on the dollar. In addition, the domestic egg producers primarily sell their products in foreign markets, where Ukrainian eggs are in high demand and only the surplus of products sold on the domestic market. This was said senior researcher of the Department of pricing and agricultural market of the National scientific center “Institute of agrarian economy” Svitlana Pashko.
