Consolidation of Egg Industry
OCTOBER 19, 2008
So are egg corporations. Thanks to an email from Farmed Animal Net for this information. These are not farming families, folks, but corporations as powerful and ruthless as anything on Wall Street. egg industry continues to consolidate. Some 200 companies have an average flock size of one million hens in a single location, with the top 60 companies producing 85% of all eggs. Proposed amendments to Canada’s Criminal Code have egg companies there worried.
