Competitiveness of the UK egg sector,base year 2018: International comparison of production costs

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

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