Competitiveness of the EU egg sector, base year 2021 : international comparison of production costs of eggs and egg products

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

Companies in the European Union egg sector have to comply with European legislation on animal welfare, food safety and environmental protection. Whereas the legislation aims to guarantee a high quality poultry production, it also confronts the sector with extra costs. Countries outside the EU do not have the same extensive legislation. This report presents the results of a study on the competitiveness of the EU egg sector. The production costs for eggs and egg products are calculated for several EU and third countries. Different scenarios are outlined to illustrate the impact of changes in import levies and exchange rates.
