On April 23, businesses were allowed to increase price of eggs under the price subsidized program.
Accordingly, the subsidized price of first quality eggs went up from VND 23,500-25,500 per ten eggs and subsidized price of first quality duck eggs went up from VND30,000-33,000 per ten eggs.
The price of eggs was adjusted because egg prices have continued to rise, even though eggs are not scarce, but supply from farms has decreased from early April.
Since early April, supply of eggs reduced slightly and input costs increased at breeding farms. This has led to hike on subsidized price.
At present, subsidized egg price is 15-27 percent lower than the price in markets.
