Daily Egg Consumption in Sri Lanka Increases by One Million, Reports DAPH

The daily consumption of eggs in Sri Lanka has risen by one million compared to the last few months, according to the Animal Production and Health Department (DAPH).

In recent months, daily egg consumption was recorded at seven million, but it has now exceeded eight million, marking an increase of one million eggs per day.

This boost in consumption is attributed to a rise in foreign tourists and the increased prices of meat, fish, and eggs, which remain highly nutritious and affordable food options.

DAPH officials discussed these findings in a meeting with Agriculture and Plantation Industries Minister Mahinda Amaraweera. However, the Minister has directed the Agriculture Ministry’s Livestock Division to conduct a comprehensive survey on the consumption of eggs, milk, and meat, noting that a proper information survey has not been conducted for a long time.
