Egg shortage continues in Kuwait

Kuwait recorded a new 'crisis' of egg shortage after thousands of chickens were destroyed at Kuwaiti farms due to bird flu. This led to a reduction in egg production that reached around 700,000 eggs daily, while the daily consumption locally is nearly 2 million eggs, with a production rate of over one billion eggs annually.

Quoting local vendors, Arabic medias reported that the demand is on the rise, while supply covers around only 50 to 60 percent of demand.

The commerce ministry allows imports from Turkey, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and UAE, and there is a ban on export of eggs to safeguard local production and prevent price rises, but the market has still not recovered.
