Panic over egg price increase

Due to the Avian Flu outbreak (H5 and H7) that is hurting the poultry business, South African consumers are experiencing a dilemma as egg costs have increased. Major stores like Pick n Pay and Woolworths are instituting egg rationing as a means of preventing stockpiling.

Customers can only purchase six eggs at a time at Woolworths. Woolworths stated that it would keep collaborating with farmers to guarantee a steady supply of eggs. As the avian flu outbreak persists, the administration also convened with stakeholders to identify a course of action.

According to TimesLIVE, industry sources have indicated that higher egg and chicken prices should be expected. Suppliers might have to import fertilised eggs to deal with the expected shortages. The avian flu outbreak is expected to continue until December.
