The French national egg promotion council CNPO said
that after two years of â€œserious crisisâ€ the market for eggs and egg products in
France seems to be back in balance.
The Comité National pour la Promotion
(CNPO) recently met in Paris to give a progress report on the
market situation of eggs and egg products in France. However, despite better
prices, egg producers face very strong increases in cost prices. Forecasts
indicate that prices of cereals and other raw materials for animal feeds will
remain high in the next months, and that it should be counted with a continuing
rise of production costs of eggs and egg products.
The council is worried about the trade developments where large
distributors (supermarkets, packing stations) put pressure on egg pricing which
is not beneficial to the consumers and certainly not to the egg producers.
CNPO called on all distributors in the egg sector to put an end to the
price war, which in the end only will devaluate the whole egg production
