Egg Market | France

France is the leading European producer of eggs. After facing a surge in egg prices in 2011, France experienced an overproduction crisis in 2013, with egg production volumes 20% higher than in 2012. In the spring of 2013, prices collapsed. At the same time, egg production costs are high due to the increase in feed prices and the high depreciation costs for new farms. The European Commission estimates European egg production in 2016 at 110.8 billion units, representing a +1.2% growth compared to 2015. In 2016, France produced 14.3 billion eggs, making it the European leader, ahead of Germany and Italy. France has 48.6 million laying hens divided into 4 breeding methods: fitted cages, outdoor, organic and ground-based. French egg consumption is higher than the European average: 230 eggs per inhabitant per year in France, compared to 203 in Europe. 

 
The French egg market is currently driven by the organic sector, whose sales grew by almost 10% in 2013. Outdoor and organic chicken farming are the two most rapidly growing farming methods, with growth of +7.7% and +4.4% respectively in 2016. The sale of organic eggs in the farmers markets and supermarkets thus jumped by 8.7% in 2013. Label Rouge eggs are the leader in this segment. According to Kantar Worldpanel, the market should continue to grow in 2014. From now on, more than 30% of French egg production is organic. Caged eggs, on the other hand, were less expensive and saw their turnover fall by 0.3% between 2012 and 2013. 
 
Overall egg production is also expected to remain at a high level, with the Glon Group, the Label Rouge and the Matines brand leading the market. However, prices are still being driven down: market regulation measures are therefore required according to the French Poultry Confederation.
