Australia to Limit Egg Purchases Starting Today

Sharing is Caring!

Starting today, Coles supermarkets in Australia will implement a temporary purchase limit on eggs due to shortages linked to bird flu outbreaks. Customers will be restricted to buying two cartons each at all stores except in Western Australia. The bird flu strain has disrupted the supply chain, leading to fewer eggs being laid. It’s a challenging situation for egg suppliers, with some predicting that the cost of a carton of eggs could potentially triple within the next few weeks. While Aldi and Woolworths have also seen shortages, they do not currently plan to impose purchase limits.

Here are more details about the egg purchase limits in Australia:

  • Reason for Limits: The purchase limits are being implemented due to bird flu outbreaks affecting egg production. The bird flu strain has disrupted the supply chain, leading to fewer eggs being laid.

  • Other Supermarkets: While Coles is implementing these limits, Aldi and Woolworths have also experienced shortages but do not currently plan to impose purchase restrictions.
  • Potential Impact: Some experts predict that the cost of a carton of eggs could potentially triple within the next few weeks due to the supply challenges.
