By Aaron Humes: A crate of eggs now costs $105, working out to $8.75 per carton or about 30 cents per egg wholesale.

Manager of the Belize Poultry Association Armando Cowo told us by telephone this afternoon that they have tried to hold down prices since an increase in chicken prices three months ago, but an increase in shipping costs for a key ingredient forced their hand.

This ingredient is known as “pre-mix”, a solution of nutrients fed in combination with corn and soybeans to chickens to produce eggs.

Belize imports pre-mix from two companies in the Netherlands and shipping costs have steadily risen.

Cowo noted that despite the Government’s efforts at subsiding fuel for farmers, increases in other costs, especially fertilizer, have outstripped these efforts.

The estimated retail price for a single egg is 50 cents or two for a dollar, though some charge three for a dollar.

Cowo told us the poultry farmers are affected by the costs of their supplies nationally and internationally and called on grocers to ease back on profit-making to help consumers.
