News comes amidst rising egg prices
These announcements came amidst news of egg prices rising in the past two months, where a tray of 30 eggs now cost S$7.50 at major supermarket chains.
The Straits Times reported that a tray of 30 eggs cost just S$6.15 in February, S$1.35 cheaper.
According to Giant, the price hike is the result of a few factors, such as the rising commodity costs and operational costs for suppliers, the ongoing pandemic, and global conflict.
The Ukraine-Russia war, for instance, has disrupted Ukraine's corn export and consequently driven up global feed prices.
The war-stricken country is the fourth largest corn exporter in the world.
Egg suppliers said their operational costs like shipping, manpower, and logistics have also risen in tandem with chicken feed prices.
