Tanveer Hasan, an egg seller at Malibagh market, told Prothom Alo that the supply of eggs in the market is much less than the demand. As a result, egg prices have increased.

According to the Trading Corporation of Bangladesh, eggs cost more when purchased by the ‘hali’ (four) rather than by the dozen. Each heli of farm eggs was sold at Tk 45-50 on Thursday, down from Tk 43-45 last week. That means, within a week the price of eggs has increased by 8 percent.

Taher Ahmed Siddiqui, president of Bangladesh Egg Producers Association, told Prothom Alo that egg production falls during winter due to various reasons, which affects the market price. However, this phase will not last long, he said.
