Fears of egg shortages after supermarket shelves pictured empty

Concerns of nationwide egg shortages have been raised after rationing has been put in place and shelves are pictured empty in some supermarkets.

Signs have been put up in stores including Tesco and Sainsbury’s warning of supply issues, and at least one Lidl branch has started rationing boxes.

It isn’t yet clear how widespread the supply issues are.

A Tesco customer posted a photo on Twitter of a sign which read: ‘Due to the hot summer we are currently experiencing low availability across our egg range. Sorry for any inconvenience.’

Another photo taken at a Sainsbury’s showed a sign which read: ‘We are currently experiencing supply issues across our fresh egg range.

‘We are working hard to resolve these and apologise for any inconvenience caused.’

And a picture of a sign from a Lidl read: ‘Eggs are limited to three units per customer to ensure that everyone has the essentials they need.’

Pub chain J. D. Wetherspoon has also said there are supply issues at some branches, with alternative options available to replace the eggs with something else in breakfast dishes.

Picture supplied by Bav Media 07976 880732. Picture dated Nov 9th shows the shortage of eggs in Sainsbury???s in Dorking ,Surrey, on Wednesday afternoon. Sainsbury???s supermarket is seeing a shortage of EGGS due to supply issues as famers leave the industry or reduce the size of their flocks due to spiralling costs. There were empty shelves at the store in Dorking yesterday afternoon (Wed) as farmers also face uncertainty due to the spread of bird flu. A notice on the supermarket shelf states: ???We are currently experiencing supply issues across our fresh eggs range, we are working hard to resolve these and apologise for any inconvenience caused.???

The shortages are believed to be a result of a combination of soaring prices for farmers and the bird flu outbreak (Picture: LNP / Rex / Shutterstock)

Spokesperson Eddie Gershon said: ‘We can confirm that there are temporary issues with egg supplies at some Wetherspoon pubs, due to the current national shortage of eggs.

‘We are experiencing issues in receiving all the supplies we require to satisfy demand in every pub.

‘This is not specific to Wetherspoon and other hospitality operators and supermarkets are facing similar issues. We apologise to customers for any inconvenience.’

The shortages are believed to be a result of a combination of soaring prices for farmers and the UK currently going through its ‘largest ever’ outbreak of bird flu.

Ben Pike, from the British Free Range Egg Producers Association, told the BBC bird flu was a ‘contributing factor’ in egg farmers struggling, but added pressure from prices was ‘probably a greater factor at the moment’.

The trade body carried out a recent survey of 163 farmers, and found a third of them have already reduced or stopped their egg production.

Farmers have asked for a 40p increase in the price of a dozen eggs to help them meet costs – but supermarkets say they are ‘constrained’ by the prices they can pass on to customers.

Andrew Opie, from the British Retail Consortium which represents supermarkets, said: ‘While avian flu has disrupted the supply of some egg ranges, retailers are experts at managing supply chains and are working hard to minimise impact on customers.

‘Some stores have introduced temporary limits on the number of boxes customers can buy to ensure availability for everyone.’

A Defra spokesperson told Metro.co.uk: ‘We understand the difficulties that rising costs combined with the bird flu outbreak are causing for farmers and we are working with industry to monitor the egg market.

‘The laying hen population is approximately 38 million so any impact on overall supply would likely be minimal.’

Metro.co.uk has also contacted Lidl – which referred us to Mr Opie’s comment above – and Sainsbury’s and Tesco for further comment.
