Organic eggs to become dearer in the US
Organic eggs are likely to become more costly in the US given the ongoing trade spat that it has with India owing to allegations that India is unfairly dumping and subsidizing the product and harming American companies. This could also result in pricier organic meat and even dairy, adding to food inflation that’s become rampant across the globe since the pandemic began. Over 40% of organic soy meal used to feed chickens from India goes to the US.
“We are seeing all of our costs go up, packaging, cartons, feed, freight labor,” John Brunnquell, head of Egg Innovations, one of the biggest U.S. producers of free-range eggs said.
