STATISTICS FROM CBN and FAO showed that Nigeria, with over 160million people is grossly underprovided with vital food components. For instance, this report revealed that milk production has been on the decline. This is compounded by a very low supply of eggs with an average of 10.56g available per person per day as against the recommendation of one egg (56.7g) per person in a day which will translate to 30 eggs per month per person.
This results in a supply and demand gap (demand for egg outstripping supply) this is one of the consequences of the high cost of egg products. This has also been compounded by the rising cost of birds’ feeds in the country.
