Georgian egg producers have decreased production since 2009 in an effort to lighten the country's overburdened market, even as retail prices have increased by 20%.


In 2009, 430.6 million eggs were produced, while in 2010 only 397 million were produced, according to the National Statistics Office of Georgia. In addition, however, there is a significant import market — by April 2011, 5 million eggs had already been imported into Georgia, mostly (4.5 million) from Ukraine. Georgia's egg export numbers are not nearly as high; in 2010, the country only managed to export 195,000 eggs.
