UK Egg Statistics Reports

Key Results

  • 6.9 million cases of eggs were packed in UK egg packing stations during the third quarter of 2014. This represents a 2% increase on the previous quarter and continues the upward trend seen over the past year back up towards the high levels last seen in 2010/11. Egg production in the coming months is not expected to continue increasing, as recent UK layer chick placings (Defra poultry statistics) have stabilised.

  • The average UK farm-gate egg price through Q3 2014 was 82.3 pence per dozen, which continued the steady price decreases seen since the peak of 92.2 pence per dozen in Q1 2013. 

  • The production of egg products during the third quarter of 2014 totalled 25 thousand tonnes. The production of liquid egg and egg products increased by 3% compared to the same period the previous year.
