With the cost of living in Ghana always on the rise, it is no surprise that the prices of basic necessities like eggs are also increasing. A topic like this is important to discuss because it affects the purchasing power of the average Ghanaian and their ability to afford basic food items.

In this article, we will be talking about the price of a crate of eggs in Ghana and the factors that contribute to the prices.

Types of eggs in Ghana

There are two main types of eggs available in the Ghanaian market. The imported eggs and locally produced eggs. Imported eggs are eggs that are shipped into the country from other countries, while locally produced eggs are eggs that are laid by chickens raised in Ghana.


Imported eggs are more expensive compared to locally produced ones. Aside from the importing taxes being a factor, imported eggs are also larger in size and come from chickens that are fed a special diet that increases their egg production. Locally produced eggs are smaller in size and come from chickens that are raised in a free-range environment in Ghana.

A crate of eggs costs GHS 13 to GHS 18 in November 2020, but as of April 2023, the price of a crate of eggs costs between GHs 20 to GHS 30. The price increased so sharply because of the high cost of maize, soybeans, and other ingredients used in the production of poultry feed and others.

Factors that affect the prices of eggs in Ghana

1. Cost of production of Eggs in Ghana

The cost of production of eggs in Ghana is a major factor that contributes to the price of eggs. Farmers in Ghana face challenges in producing eggs due to the high cost of feed, vaccines, and other inputs needed to raise chickens. The cost of electricity and water also adds to the cost of production, making it difficult for farmers to produce eggs at a low cost.

2. Lack of credit facilities

Lack of credit facilities and support from the government makes it difficult for farmers to invest in their farms and increase their production. As a result, the supply of eggs in the market is limited, which drives up the price of eggs.

3. Supply and demand

The law of supply and demand is a fundamental principle that affects the price of eggs in Ghana. When there is a high demand for eggs and the supply is low, the price of eggs increases. When there is a low demand for eggs and the supply is high, the price of eggs decreases.
