Egg shortage in the offing?



All Ceylon Egg Producers Association President R.M. Sarath Rathnayake has warned of an egg shortage during the upcoming festive season.

He says that this is possible due to the shortage of animal feed and in the aftermath of the price controls imposed by the government.

Around 50% of the egg producers have left the egg production, with many selling off the poultry as meat, due to losses sparked from the control prices.
