EGG PRICES FALL. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 11 August 1939
EGG PRICES FALL. SThe Egg and Pulp Marketing Board advise somewhat heavier stocks ow ing to the sudden influx of receivals. Several other important factors com bined to cause the board, to drasti cally reduce prices. Latest cables received indicate that London .values are such that ex port at present would entail 'heavy losses. Producers will, therefore, realise that it is of- paramountf im* portance that' prices should be fixed which will encourage ldcal consumb tion and which it is expected can be maintained pending an increase in London values. The wholesale price of 1/ Iper dozen for first quality hen eggs averaging 24 ozs. to the dozen will cause active local buying, particularly as this wholesale value should ensure a, re tail price of less than l1d per egg. Housewives who have' been comr plaining lately df the. ,high cost of living will doubtless appreciate the reduced •price and. its effect on their' weekly budget.
