There is no need for panic, it's just a storm in an eggcup.
I was quoting the NFU? I presume they know farmers. So, other than it being an obvious perspnal attack for no reason, I don't see the relevance of this question.
Sounded like a compliment?And this wasn't a personal attack then from further up? "Plus brexit. But I admire how hard you work to deflect from it"
It's been going on for decades.Not entirely. Retailers pushed the narrative of it being 100% down to avian flu, which exacerbated the issue but was the straw that broke the camel's back for producers. For years eggs have been used as a loss leader with producers constantly pushed to produce close to or below cost of production. There is a constant race to the bottom on price for the retailers, with not a thought spared for the sustainability of the entire supply chain. The huge spikes in cost of feed, along with fuel, electricity etc has made it utterly impossible for many suppliers. Many of whom have opted out of producing at the moment. The long term behaviours of retailers towards suppliers is scandalous
that's nice dear:
Anyway away from the personal stuff: Do you think brexit has had an impact on the egg shortage?
End of the day though consumer behaviour drives everythingIt's been going on for decades.
I used to work for a major food retailer and trust me they bled suppliers dry. Way too powerful.
Ah so you DO admit that brexit had an impact!Do you think you had an impact on Brexit happening to begin with and thus the subsquent egg shortage?
