Inflation: Breton egg farmers on strike and suspend their deliveries


To respond to the increase in selling prices of major brands, this protest movement was recorded in the middle of Candlemas.

Since last Friday, hundreds of Breton chicken and egg farmers have been on strike and no longer deliver their crops to distributors.

The movement is all the more symbolic as the demand for eggs was strong during the Candlemas period, which was very favorable to the production of pancakes.

Producers are therefore expressing their dissatisfaction with the prices at which supermarkets are buying their products: in the context of inflation in recent months, retailers have increased their selling prices, unlike breeders.

According to BFMTV, the single egg is sold by the latter for 9 cents.

And ends up at 20 cents on the shelves.

Producers then did not receive the difference as their costs increased.

“We have additional costs every day, whether it's the increase in the chick, the pullet, the bills that arrive with increases of 10, 15 or 20%.

There we become angry because we have been telling them for several months

beware, you are going to run out of eggs


thundered on RTL last week, Patrick Hamon, breeder of laying hens and egg manager at the FNSEA in Brittany.

And to add:

“All work deserves a salary.

With the hours we work, there will be tragedies in the countryside if it continues.

Faced with this situation, breeders are seeing red and are asking for a 10% revaluation.

Or 1 cent per egg sold.
