TIJUANA, BC - Tthe supply of eggs has been regulated in Baja California since September 30 and the price began to come down but has still not reached the average cost prior to the outbreak of avian influenza in Jalisco, emphasised BC Undersecretary of Agricultural Development Francisco Javier Perez Sarmiento.

He said that in August the product suffered a price increase of between 20 and 30% due to the outbreak, resulting in a critical situation throughout the country. Baja California receive eggs from the main supplier in Sonora. The amount sent to Baja California was reduced and this impacted the price, he explained. The amount of sent from Sonora decreased from four to three million kilograms per month, he said, but has already stabilized because providers regulated the slaughter of hens. Since, prices rebounded to an average price that remains at 50 pesos per package. Sarmiento Perez recalled that the average price per package of eggs was 46.50 pesos in Baja California at commercial food chains. During July the approximate price was 23 pesos ($1.77 US) per kilogram.
