Prices of eggs could go beyond Ghc30 per crate – Poultry Farmers

The Ghana National Association of Poultry Farmers has given a clear indication that it may have to sell a crate of good-sized eggs for more than Ghc30 ghc. This is because of the metastasized price increase in the production within past few weeks.

When the Northern Regional Chairman of the Association of Poultry Farmers, George Dasseh spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East he said farmers can no longer continue to bear the cost of the rising prices of inputs, particularly, feed.

While he has asked the public to disregard the revised prices that are making the rounds, Mr. Dasseh asked the public to brace themselves to pay even more than what had been advertised by some farmers as price changes.

“Even the Ghc30 increment, if we will be frank with ourselves for farmers to make reasonable profits, the Ghc30 is not even enough,” he said.

Mr. Dasseh continued to say that “Cost of production is increasing by the day. Maize that we used to buy Ghc160, is now Ghc260. So you cant see that is almost double. Soya meal that we used to buy at Ghc160 is being sold between Ghc240 and Ghc250”.

“Prices are increasing every day so if we do not also increase our prices, the industry would collapse,” he said worryingly.

While the price increments are necessary towards the survival of the farmers, Mr. Dasseh insisted that due process must be followed. Speaking on the same platform, Mr. Dasseh asked the public to disregard the price review purporting to be from the Ghana National Association of Poultry Farmers.
