As the standard of living gets worsened by the day under the ruling government evident in the increment of prices of goods and services, the prices of eggs have proportionally gone up
According to the report we sighted on Ghanafeed, a small crate of egg will now cost ¢30, a medium-size and unsorted crate will cost ¢32, a cedi more for the large size egg crate, and an extra cedi for the extra-large egg crate.
This information was available to the media by the General Secretary of the Association Fred Damoah during an interview with GHOne Business’ Emmanuel Agyabeng.
He said, “For the past two years, the prices of our ingredients have been skyrocketing, and we haven’t been able to do anything about it.” We are seeing increases in the cost of feed due to the rate at which poultry farms are closing down and how prices are increasing. He explained, “We had to join together, have a single voice, and then set a common pricing.”
Meanwhile, the Ghana National Association of Poultry Farmers (GNAPF) says considering the current challenges confronting the industry, it’s also increasing the price of egg. For both associations, the Starting price is GH¢30 and ends at GH¢34 for a crate of eggs.
