Retail Egg Prices in Berlin Supermarket


Most consumers in cities in Germany buy their food requirements daily, patronizing specialty dairy, bakery or produce stores and from 3,000 to 5,000 square foot local mini-supermarkets. Eggs displayed in an Edeka store in Central Berlin are provided for comparison with the U.S.  Eggs are imprinted with a code at the farm of production or at a packing plant. Eggs are packed unwashed. Shell-eggs are predominantly brown although white eggs are available. Yolk color is more intense and orange- tinted from inclusion of synthetic carotenoids in diets. Fiber packs that are biodegradable or can be recycled are the standard based on strong environmental consciousness among consumers. In conformity with legislation in Germany pullet chicks are derived from hatches where male embryos were removed early in incubation obviating euthanasia of cockerel chicks. Nutritionally enriched eggs are uncommon.



Prices of eggs in U.S. currency per dozen in the Edeka store were:-

Organic free-range $7.60
Organic barn $4.15
Conventional barn $3.77
Conventional free-range $4.02

10-pack of organic (‘Bio’) eggs. All packaging is biodegradable or recyclable
