Cal-Maine’s latest results show consumers pay nearly twice as much for a dozen eggs

What does inflation look like these days?

Consumers pay roughly twice as much for a dozen eggs as they did a year ago. final results from Cal-Maine Disheslargest egg producer in the country.

The average selling price for each dozen eggs for the quarter ending November 2022 increased from $1.37 to $2.71 year-on-year. This increase has outstripped the increase in feed costs that have increased in recent years.

Supply and demand drive prices up.

While bird flu wreaked havoc on industry supply, Cal-Maine continued to see tremendous demand, particularly for premium specialty eggs. Traditional egg volumes were actually 2% lower this quarter, while volumes of specialty eggs increased by 24%.

There are several reasons for this. Conventional egg prices have increased so much that they have exceeded specialty egg prices. Cal-Maine’s average price for traditional eggs in the last quarter was $2.88—21 percent more than the $2.37 price for specialty eggs.

So why pay for a traditional egg when you can get a cheaper specialty egg? Cal-Maine noted that the phenomenon has been a surprising trend recently: “Traditional egg prices exceed specialty egg prices, it has occurred over the past three quarters, but is historically atypical.”

It’s also driving demand for specialty eggs — cage-free egg imperatives in California and Massachusetts last January, and the trend of “more retailers shifting to selling more cage-free products.”

Cal-Maine shares rose 68% in 2022. Still, the stock fell nearly 5% in extended trading on Wednesday.
