Consumers to pay more for eggs from Sept. 1

Antigua Barbuda Layer Farmers’ Association

Dear Valued Customer,

We, the Poultry Farmers of Antigua & Barbuda, have been working hard over the years to deliver quality eggs at the lowest possible price.

We have been adsorbing price increases in all our inputs to ensure that you, our valued customer, receive stable prices.

However, this has now become extremely difficult, especially with the substantial increases in feed, chicks, packaging materials and other supplies.

From September 1, therefore, the wholesale price of eggs will increase to $10 /dozen, or $300 /case for both white and brown eggs.

This increase is to ensure that we are able to meet our financial obligations and to continue with the excellent service of supplying the Nation with fresh, locally produced eggs year-round.

We look forward to your understanding, and continued patronage.

  1. Hmmm,I hope the government or the unions
    Will find away to raise our pay as well, especially where security officers are concern….

  2. To “Shitgovt”: Why are you so filthy mouthed. That usually indicates lack of schooling, manners, and common decency. Who raised you? The ancestors are disappointed.

  3. Consumers, please note WHOLESALE price is $10 dzn.
    Retailers will add a mark-up, hopefully reasonable.

  4. Can we source eggs at a lower cost over seas?

    Why pursue this if it is cost prohibitive ? Just to say 100% local?

  5. That’s how we will never get better now you wanna give your money to the white man. Slavery mentality .I support 10$ a dozen. Local
