The price of the ever-fluctuating chicken egg increased. Nepal Egg Producers Association has increased the price of eggs with effect from Wednesday.
The price of large eggs has reached Rs 395 per crate (30 eggs) and medium eggs Rs 365 per crate. The price has gone up as the demand has increased while the production has declined.
Earlier, 3.8 million eggs were produced per day in Nepal, but now the production has been reduced to 3.4 million, according to the association.
Two thousand seven hundred farmers have been raising layer chickens in Nepal. More than two lakh people have got direct employment in these farms. About Rs 125 billion has been invested in the poultry sector in Nepal.
