Eggs are an essential protein source for Ghanaian households due to its nutritional value and affordability among others. According to the Ghana Heart Foundation, Ghana’s annual per capita egg consumption is estimated at between 18 and 24 compared to Mexico (321), USA (255), France (248), Portugal (186) and India (40). There exists huge potential for market growth as urbanisation, rising incomes and changing tastes have led to an increase in egg consumption.
With a growing urban citizenry and the increasing conversion of agricultural land into residential use, agribusinesses located close to these cities are advantaged by their ability to deliver their products to markets quickly and in pristine condition (especially in the case of eggs due to its fragility), devoid of the challenges that arise from long distance transportation of such goods.
There are exciting opportunities for dynamic and innovative agribusinesses to take advantage of the poultry and egg production shortfalls as there is a niche market among health and taste savvy consumers who want to be fed with fresh, tasty and healthy locally grown produce.
