Egg supply is back, but demand is not
Egg prices have plunged to their lowest in a decade as poultry farms have recovered from last year’s bird flu outbreak, which wiped out 48 million birds across the U.S.
The bird flu aftermath also continues to haunt manufacturers in the egg business. In the latest reported quarter, Post reported a 15.9% decline in egg volumes sold through its Michael Foods segment due to a reduction in the company’s egg supply for sale. But through an adjusted pricing strategy, egg dollar sales fell only 2.9%.
